To succeed with a student thesis or other study assignments, abilities in information seeking are required. Library instruction provides students with 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, software for saving and handling references in academic texts.
In close cooperation with LiU teachers, we help students prepare for information seeking challenges during their education and in future working life.
We also offer seminars and workshops in information seeking, search strategies, citation databases, and Open Access issues for doctoral students.
