Help from the library #
One of the main services from the library is individual and personalised help and guidance to students and employees. Contact your local library to book a help session with a librarian. Send us an email and let us know what we can help you with. You need to use a separate form to book a help session at the Ålesund Library or a help session at the Gjøvik Library.
The main areas we offer help in are information searches and literature. This service is meant to help strengthen your information literacy and provide advice on the use of sources, copyright, reference management software, etc. Some of our libraries also offer guidance in Cristin for employees and PhD research fellows.
