Information searching skills for your students

The Library offers instruction in information searching skills for student groups at the University of Gothenburg. Teachers and course coordinators are welcome to contact us to request instruction for their student group.

Searching, evaluating and citing

Our instructions about searching, evaluating and citing are adapted to the students' subject fields and previous knowledge. We design the sessions to suit the students' assignment, project or thesis course.

Sessions may contain exercises about

  • how to choose keywords
  • subject specific search services and databases
  • evaluating search results
  • evaluating different types of publications
  • how to avoid plagiarism.

Contact us to discuss the need of your specific student group.

Sessions on campus and online

We teach larger groups in the University's lecture halls or smaller groups in the libraries' classrooms. You may also book a online session, where we usually use Zoom.


The cost is SEK 450 per hour for groups of up to ten students and SEK 900 per hour for groups exceeding ten students. Instruction sessions may take one and a half to three hours, depending on what you wish to include for your students.
