Search tips

Finding relevant literature for your work can be a complex process. Here is some advice on how to improve your information searches.

Where to search?

When you are looking for literature for a report or paper it is wise to consider where to search for suitable material for academic work. In OneSearch you can search for books and dissertations that are available at our library.  You can also find articles, journals, conference publications, reports, etc. from most of the databases the library subscribes to.

If you only want to search for articles within a given subject and limit your search to academic material, our subject guides can direct you to the relevant databases.

Libris is the joint catalogue of the Swedish academic and research libraries. Here you can find books but also dissertations in full text. You may order interlibrary loans on books that we do not have in our library. In SwePub you may search for academic publications from Swedish universities.

Book a librarian

If you need tutoring in searching for information you can book a librarian. Booking a librarian is an option if you have already searched for information on your own but have encountered problems and need help to proceed.
