PL 8/07: Oslo University College: LIS in English 2004-

Filed under: research — plinius @ 9:26 pm

The entries below – taken from the publications database Frida on January 31, 2007 – comprise all registered publications in English – academic and popular – for the years 2004-2006 from the School of Librarianship (BIBIN) in Oslo

There are, most likely, some items that have not been entered into Frida. And I have not aimed at high bibliographical consistency (too much work for a blog). But I hope the bibliography tells a bit about what goes on in the Norwegian LIS field.

The Oslo school is by far the biggest library school in the country. But I intend to add publications from the University of Tromsø – the second largest training institution – and the Technical University of Trondheim – which teaches information science rather than librarianship.

You could also go directly to Frida (advanced search). Leave Tittel (Title) and Navn (Name) empty. Choose publication years (År) : From (Fra) – To (Til). Set Språk (Language) to Engelsk (English) – and press Søk (Search).
