On May 1, SSN's chain agreement with Norli starts and our bookstores change their name to Norli Akademisk. The bookstores are still owned by SSN.

Norli Akademisk

Norli is focusing on academic books under the name Norli Akademisk and SSN's own bookshops on six campuses are now changing their names. The name Brage Bok will be phased out and eventually students, staff and other customers will see some profile changes and recognize some of Norli's campaigns in the campus bookstores.

– Norli is now focusing on academic books under the name Norli Akademisk, which means that they will be even better at academic books than they already are. We at SSN's bookstores will work with the syllabus in the same way as before and the physical stores on campus will have exactly the same, good and correct selection for studies at USN and the vocational schools as when we were called Brage Bok. In addition, the online store at will have titles for the same studies, says Toril Bergh Moss, department manager for bookstores at SSN.

– We will also be testing more of Norli's range in the campus stores. A good selection of English paperbacks and board games are product groups we hope and believe that students and staff will appreciate, Toril continues.

Students at the Police University College in Stavern can still buy their curriculum from the bookstore at USN Campus Vestfold.

The Book card is discontinued

*The discount does not apply to new Norwegian books according to the book agreement. The coupon can not be used in Norli's webshop.

Better student welfare

In a press release from 19.3.2024, SSN announced that we have entered into a new chain agreement with Norli. SSN has previously had an agreement with Akademika.

The agreement improves student welfare in many ways, such as competitive prices, a good online store and improved framework conditions - which in turn will create a healthier operation of the bookstores. SSN still owns the bookstores itself and any profit is returned to operations and services to students.
