The core topics in library instruction at Linköping University are information seeking, source criticism, scholarly publication, reference management and anti-plagiarism/academic honesty. In close cooperation with LiU teachers, we help students develop the abilities to manage these challenges.
To succeed with a student thesis or other study assignments, abilities in information seeking are required and the Library’s instruction provide tools for navigating the landscape of academic publishing as well as finding and accessing relevant scholarly publications and other information.
To be able to evaluate information and to know how to cite and refer sources in a proper manner – and thereby avoiding plagiarizing – are other important areas addressed in library instruction.
The library also offers introductions in Zotero and EndNote, reference management programs for saving and handling references in academic texts.
