Not a BI student or BI employee?

If you are not affiliated with BI you may purchase a one-day subscription to borrow books or access our electronic resources. You don't need to buy a one-day card if you just want to browse our shelves and read newspapers or journals.

This is included in a one-day card

A one-day subscription entitles you to:

  • Borrow books for 14 days.
  • Renew books up to three times.
  • Access most of our electronic resources. We will log you on to a computer in the library. Some databases, such as Bloomberg and Eikon, are available for BI students only.
  • Short guidance

Price of a one-day subscription

  • BI alumni or students from other institutions: 100 NOK
  • Other: 300 NOK
