Instruction and support

The library offers search support, lectures and workshops on information literacy and reference management.

Library instruction

We design library instruction together with teachers to help students achieve the learning outcomes related to information retrieval.


Teaching is often carried out several times in the same programme. In these cases, there should be a progression of content. Teaching librarians actively work for integration and progression.

It is important that the teaching is linked to course assignments where information skills are needed, such as writing an essay.

Examples of content:

  • search strategy
  • relevant sources of information
  • critical evaluation of sources
  • critical evaluation of search results
  • interpretation and management of references.


Teachers are welcome to contact us to book a library class for their course and program. Use our booking form on Insidan. The request must be made at least 4 weeks before the desired class.
