In stead of maintaining a distance of 1 meter, you now have to keep a distance of 2 meters. This means that we will reduce the number of study spaces in the library. This could mean that some bookings will be deleted. The people affected by this will be contacted.

We are working to block of areas where a distance of 2 meters is impossible to keep. Please do not use areas that are cordoned off.

To avoid close contact, we only offer quick guidance at the service desk. Classes and guidance will be digital. Contact if you have any questions or need guidance.

If you prefer not to visit the library, you can return books in our return box. At Ullandhaug you can find the return box by the entrance to Kjølv Egeland House, closest to the library. At the library in Bjergsted the return box is located by the entrance to the library.

Any changes to the corona guidelines will be posted at

  • Keep a distance of at least 2 meters. Use a face mask when this is not possible.
