Footnotes

Universities, specialised university colleges and university colleges are accredited higher education institutions approved by NOKUT (the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education).
The library population will vary from year to year because some years new entities are added, and other entities on occasion does not report to the annual statistics. On occasion entities might have had their library type evaluated and changed.
There are some uncertainty related to the numbers of digital collections.
