We also offer a few guest PC’s at some departments where a user account is not required. Ask the front desk staff at the library when needed.

Consider the environment

We encourage everyone to be environmentally conscious and limit the amount of paper copies and prints. Instead, use our great free facilities to scan, save and read online!

You can't copy unlimited

We refer to the Kopinor agreement involving students and staff copying for internal business purposes. When it comes to books, you can only copy up to 15% of the page number, but nevertheless a short story or a chapter or a similar section. Copying from books that are no longer in trade or can’t be purchased directly from the publisher in a timely manner, can be copied from up to 30% of the page number.

See Kopinor’s page for information on the Kopinor Agreement.

Campus access and wireless networks

A large part of the library's resources require that you are within the UiT network to access them.
Here are some suggestions for how to more easily access our online resources from home.

You only need to be connected to the Internet (no VPN needed).

When you are at home or other places outside of the UiT network you will be prompted to log in with your Feide username and password in Oria when accessing the library resource.
