Library Tutorials

As a teacher, you are able to book tutorials in information retrieval for your students. The library also offers seminars for staff and individual guidance in information searching.

Students

As a teacher you are able to book library tutorials in information retrieval for your students by emailing bibinfo@du.se. Tuition aims to help students develop their skills to independently search for, evaluate and apply information within their subject field.

For tutorials to be relevant and worthwhile for students, it is important that their purpose connects clearly with the course students are taking. Nevertheless, we would prefer that content is planned with a view to the programme as a whole.

For programmes, tutorials can be held as students progress through their studies and over the academic terms until the programme ends. Tuition is also offered for courses that are not part of a programme. The librarian and the course teacher discuss the planning of the tutorials.

Tutorial Content – Examples:

  • Introduction to library services
  • Discussion on scientific material
  • Searches in relevant database
  • Discussions and tools for the critical evaluation of sources
  • Reference management
