Questions about scanned material

It is not possible to search scanned material, but you can view such material by browsing through the images.

Many of the sources are scanned "på oppslag", which results in a picture showing two pages from a source. If you have printed out one page from such a picture, it may be difficult to read when it is fitted into an A4-page. To print out both pages on separate A4 sheets, you must login and create a so called "PDF Collection", which can then print out. When creating such a collection, you can choose to split the scanned page into two. Read more about how to do this in this user guide Printing out scanned material.

It is, of course, possible to print out a double page on an A3 printer, if you have one available.
