Liaison librarians' support for teachers and degree programmes

Collaborate with your liaison librarian – and give your students the relevant education and support in scientific approach and knowledge management throughout their studies.

The liaison librarian – a link between the library and our undergraduate and master programmes

Contact us for more information on how we can support you – and to discuss how we can collaborate in developing your students’ ability to search, evaluate and manage information.

How we work – in dialog and close collaboration with you as a teacher

  • We work in dialogue and close collaboration with you as a teacher. The content is aligned with the intended learning outcomes in the course syllabus, and we strive to be well integrated in the courses.
  • Your feedback (and your students) feedback is highly valued in offering the right support and teaching with high quality and relevance. Our teaching is normally evaluated in the course evaluations, or if necessary, with other measures.
  • Our teaching approach is working with a progression of skills and knowledge, where the students gradually and step-by-step learn information literacy skills, from basic skills to more advanced proficiency.
  • Our teaching methods, learning activities, and learning assessments is based in literature and research concerning, for example search strategies, as well as medical or pedagogical literature.
  • We use internationally and nationally recognised standards and methods from for example Cochrane and SBU (Swedish Agency for Health Technology Assessment and Assessment of Social Services) when working with evidence-based practice.

What does a laison librarian do?

We teach how to search for, select, evaluate and reference information

We give lectures, courses and workshops on different aspects of information literacy, such as searching, selecting, evaluating and citing sources. The aim is to provide students with a solid foundation for a critical approach to sources and reference management.

We give individual consultations in searching and reference management

We offer complimentary student guidance to scheduled classes: Students can book one-hour sessions and get support focused on their individual needs concerning searching, reference management and source criticism. This service is very appreciated, especially by students working on their degree projects.

We produce manuals, videos and other support materials

Our online guide Search, evaluate, write, and cite offers videos and resources on different levels so that your students can build their skills step-by-step in progression.

We purchase literature (mainly textbooks) for lending in our libraries.

Progression of skills and knowledge – five levels of information literacy teaching

For each level of progression, we have formulated information literacy skills answering to competencies needed at that level of education. In doing so, we aim to improve our students’ study results and prepare them for their future professional and research careers.
