Library services



NTNU’s institutional repository is called NTNU Open. Here, you can find bachelor’s theses, master’s theses and PhD theses, reports as well as articles that staff and students at NTNU have written, where the authors have chosen open access publishing.

Access to the e-books, e-journals, and databases that we offer online will be available to everyone who visits the library. To use them outside the library, one must have an active employment relationship with NTNU. 


Open journal systems

These are open access journals published by NTNU. NTNU employees are editors. 

Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) 

DOAJ is a database of scholarly Open Access journals. All the journals are thus openly available. 

Visit the library and borrow books

The NTNU University Library is a public library. This means that everyone can visit the library and borrow books and other materials from our collections. Borrowing from the library is free for everyone, and the loan period is usually four weeks. 

Our database is called Oria. Here, you can search in the library’s printed and electronic collections. The collections consists of books, articles, journals, master’s theses, doctoral theses, music, films and more.

To borrow material from the library, you must register in person at the library or send us an email. To get registered, contact one of our libraries. 

If you have a national library card, a library card from the municipal public library or another university / university college in Norway, you can usually use it in our library after it has been registered.
