Information desk

When the Information desk is staffed, you can ask all kinds of questions about information searching. If you are unable to come to the Library, please call us at 026-64 85 48 or send an e-mail to biblioteket@hig.se.

The Search Guide

  • In our Search Guide, we will guide you through the four steps of information retrieval by teaching you how to plan your search, how to conduct it, how to find material and, finally, how to evaluate your search results.

Book a librarian

Are you working on a thesis, report or a dissertation and need tips about finding sources and search techniques?

Students, teachers, researchers and other members of staff can book a session for guidance on information searching. A librarian will help you to search in different databases. We can also help with your information searching at the Library counter. If you are a distance student, you can be guided via the telphone or online.

Subject Guides

We have created subject guides in several subjects. Here we give you tips on how to find databases and on how to do searches in specific subjects.
