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.
We have been in touch with the provider, Bokbasen, and are currently discussing how best to represent their content in our Delivery systems.
We are therefore still in preliminary talks, but the provider is receptive.

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