UiT University library is a public scientific library. The collections consist of physical and digital material, individual rights and obligations apply to the use of physical documents and the library's electronic resources. We have a Digital First policy, which means that e-books and e-journals will be preferred by the Acquisitions department, when such are available.
The patron has implicitly accepted these lending rules when the library patron card is taken into use. Patrons are reponsible for making themselves acquainted with the lending rules. Patron card for students is included in the student ID card. Other patrons will receive patron card in the library.
Rights vary depending on patron’s connection with UiT. General right to borrowing is available for persons above 18 years of age. This includes borrowing physical documents when visiting the library, and the use of the library’s digital collection at the premises.
Employees and students have the right to use all material owned by the University library, (excepting material under specific restrictions). Employees and students can order documents through the discovery tool Oria, and the can request documents from all of the UiT libraries and receive them at chosen library location. These users are also offered inter library loans from libraries outside UiT.
Students enrolled at UiT, who follow decentralised programs, or for some other reason studies outside of a UiT campus, can arrange to have books shipped to home address in Norway, or library with UiT academic contract.
The University library offers services beyond basic services to users with affiliation to institutions who have formalised agreements with the University library. Persons who do not have such affiliations, must request services from their own institution or from a public library.
Documents the patron removes from the University library must be checked out
Patron is personally responsible for all material registered to their patron card. If material is loaned to third party, the responsibility remains with registered patron.
