Academic e-books from Norwegian publishers via Allvit / Bokbasen
The Norwegian academic publishers will be making a large selection of their academic books and publications available as e-books in 2019. This is part of a national effort to strengthen the position of Norwegian as a language used in academic and research publications as well as in bachelor- and master-level studies in Norway.
Bokbasen (https://www.bokbasen.no) is developing an online solution for purchasing and administration of library licenses for these academic e-books from Norwegian publishers, and we would like to have this collection included in Alma ‘s Community Zone.
This content is now available in our Delivery products.
Thank you for your contribution!
Regarding the holdings – this is under discussion with Bokbasen and will be followed up by the Alma Product team.

We are happy to hear that 'Bokbasen Allvit' now is available via Community Zone.
However, there are some challenges regarding the administration of this collection. There is a need for a solution for the administration of purchases in order to reflect the availability for each institution. In this context we are wondering if it would be possible to add the provider (Bokbasen) to the Upload Electronic Holding functionality in Alma.
Please see attached file for more detailed description.
Note: we opened a ticket (#00650174) in Salesforce regarding this, and was adviced to add this request under this existing idea.

This is a very important resource to Norwegian students and researchers, and should be made searchable in our library catalogue.
