Tutorials for Students

The library's subject librarians are responsible for the provision of library tutorials. As a teacher, you are able to book sessions in information searching for your students on bibinfo@du.se. Tuition aims to help students develop their skills in searching, evaluating and applying information critically to their subject area. Below you can see examples of different tutorials, although the content can be customized according to requirements.

Library Introduction

Students receive an introduction to the library's information resources, as well as a tour of the library.

Basic Information Searching

A subject librarian details the library's information resources and provides instruction on how to search for and critically review information.

Advanced Information Searching

Students gain in-depth knowledge of how to search for and evaluate scientific information. They will learn different search strategies and review and compare relevant search tools.

Courses at the Doctoral Level

Dalarna University’s course General Principles of Scientific Work: Introductory Course, FHV0001, 7,5 credits, contains a section on searching for information in databases and scientific communication that the library is responsible for. We also go through Open Access, electronic publishing, bibliometrics/altmetrics, copyright, archiving, storing research data and reference management.

Seminars for Staff

The library can organize seminars regarding information resources, reference management programmes or thematic overviews of information retrieval. Staff members are welcome to contact the library with requests or suggestions on bibinfo@du.se. When a lunch seminar is arranged, dates and times are posted on the intranet and in the university's calendar.

Book an Appointment with a Librarian

The subject librarians offer both students and staff individually tailored instruction in information searching through Book an Appointment with a Librarian service.
