The libraries’ ambition is to act as a pedagogic resource and dialogue partner in questions concerning information literacy within the education.
The libraries’ role in the education
Information literacy is mentioned as one of the learning outcomes in many syllabi. Lecturers are welcome to consult with the libraries, who will also give practical teaching assistance within the area of information literacy. The libraries' thus can act as a support in the learning process, helping students to better their information literacy skills.
The subject libraries can also serve as a dialogue partner in discussions concerning course literature. Lecturers can receive help in, for example, exploring what course literature is available among the e-resources. If you produce printed or electronic coursepacks, the Lund University Libraries Head Office guidance advises you as to what you should keep in mind.
My Course Library
Many courses and programmes have chosen to use the service My Course Library to provide their students with a selection of information resources adapted to the specific course. The service works as a tool for the lecturer when it comes to structuring and presenting information that is important to a certain course.
Student work such as undergraduate theses and essays can be published in the database LUP Student Papers. That way they become searchable through Uppsök, the national search service for undergraduate work. The libraries help students with print disabilities to access course literature in alternative formats.
