Teaching and learning services

It is important that students have a variety of opportunities to learn what libraries have to offer, building their media and information skills over the course of their studies. Do not hesitate to contact us if we can contribute to a course, or help students with their skills in information retrieval, reference management, copyright, and scientific communication.

Introduction to library use

Undergraduates are welcome to attend an introduction to the Library of Science at the start of each term. The introduction covers such things as borrowing textbooks, prints and copies, and access to electronic resources.


Our librarians contribute to a range of undergraduate courses. The focus is primarily information retrieval and how to evaluate and cite different types of sources, but includes source criticism, academic integrity, copyright, and scientific communication.

Writing skills

The Library of Science offers extra support with essay-writing skills for students. In addition to lectures and workshops, individual students can book an appointment with our librarians for tailored support in the field of their essay.

LibGuides as a teaching tool

LibGuides are a useful tool for creating effective online guides, whether subject guides, course guides, or guides to information retrieval and source management. Contact the Library of Science for help creating LibGuides specific to your course.


The Library of Science is working to produce Canvas modules on searches, citations, and source criticism that can be imported into existing Canvas courses. We can tailor modules to your particular course. Contact us to find out more.

Citation and reference guidelines

All branches of the Library of Science offer reference management guides which you can use in your teaching. Students who are writing papers and reports can benefit from using reference management software such as EndNote. The Library of Science offers support and courses in using EndNote. Contact Britta Smångs (britta [dot] smangs [at] science [dot] lu [dot] se) or Eva Cyrén (eva [dot] cyren [at] science [dot] lu [dot] se) for further details.
