The role of the libraries in the education

Studying at a university implies being able to search, evaluate and use relevant information. Many syllabi mention information literacy as one of the learning outcomes. The libraries offer training in information searching and lecturers are always welcome to discuss this issue with the libraries, who can also take active part in the education. The libraries may thus contribute to the students developing their information literacy, and act as a support in the learning process.   

Many teachers use My Course Library to provide students with a selection of information resources. The service works as a tool for the lecturer when structuring and adapting information that is important to a certain course.

Library affiliation

All students belong to one of the LUB network libraries, the so called home library, generally the library that is the moste closely attached to their field of study. The library holds course and reference literature, has reader seats; several libraries also provide group study areas and computer workstations. Everyone studying at Lund University has access to the university’s electronic resources through their StiL identity, also from computers outside the campus network.
Undergraduate student works, such as essays or theses, can be published in LUP Student Papers, and in that way become searchable on a national level.
