Student support

The libraries at Lund University offer support in your studies in the form of tuition in information retrieval, source evaluation and reference management. The librarians publish digital subject and course guides, LibGuides, with relevant databases and links. You can also book an appointment with a librarian for individual supervision on an information issue.

Library instruction and guidance

Students can get support in their studies from the libraries. We teach information management, how to write references and critically review the sources of the information you use in your studies. We offer lectures and seminars, run open search workshops and also offer various kinds of learning resources. The tuition is often included in your course schedule.

Book a librarian

If you need help in your search for information or if you want more individual support, you can book an appointment with a librarian for information guidance at many of the libraries.


There are a number of different subject and course guides, LibGuides, compiled by the libraries to support you in your studies. For example, you can find guides within your subject area and guides which offer an overview of e-books, reference management or academic integrity.
