You will need a library card to borrow from UBA. Students and employees use student cards or employee cards. Other borrowers can be registered with a library card, which is used at public libraries (national library card) or can obtain a library card by showing identification with a photo. You can also obtain a digital national library card from the National Library, nb.bib.no.
Loans will be automatically renewed 5 times for students and patrons without affiliation to UiA and 24 times for employees unless the loan has been requested by someone else. In that case you will be notified by e-mail.
Maximum loan period: Students 12 weeks. Employees 50 weeks
Loans of magazine booklets and CDs will not be renewed.
The library may set other lending times for parts of the collections or or stop some material from being borrowed. For literature borrowed from another library, the owner library's rules for lending and compensation apply. These books can be renewed in the usual way in Oria
As a patron you are personally responsible for resources that you borrow; please make sure that they are returned within the due date and in good condition.
We will notify you in advance of the final due date and on the due date itself. If you do not return the item(s) in question, we will send a reminder, a notice concerning the compensation fee, and again for the compensation fee itself. There will be late fees on the first and second reminders after the due date. The notification about the due date is sent as an SMS, on the condition that you have a Norwegian mobile phone number.
The frequency with which the e-mails are sent depends on the loan period for the individual document. A book that is only for day loans, for example, will receive a compensation fee faster than a book that can be borrowed for 12 weeks. When a loan is several weeks late, you get a loan stop.
The notification of compensation is the last resort to deliver or pay compensation before we send the invoice. An invoice with a compensation fee will be sent a few weeks later and is NOK 750 per document. The administration fee for invoices is NOK 250. We do not accept a new copy as a replacement. For borrowed documents, the owner's library's rates apply. Particularly valuable works must be fully replaced. See own information about fees that will be introduced on 01.01.2021.
You can see the status of loans, orders and fees when you log in to Oria. NB! If you do not receive emails, we ask that you check the trash and accept the sender firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have borrowed books, you will receive an e-mail with a loan overview on the 2nd day of each month. Check if you get this email!
