Services for researchers

The library provides support for researchers and doctoral students at the University of Gothenburg.

Information searching

Researchers and doctoral students can make an appointment with a librarian to get support regarding information searching. We help you who want to learn more about searching for information and provide support if you want to do advanced searches or systematic literature reviews.

Reference management
