Book tutoring in referencing

Do you want to learn more about referencing, source evaluation and information seeking? The library offers one-to-one tutoring for students and staff at Södertörn University and The Swedish Red Cross University College.

For our students

The tutoring is closed for summer and will open again in september. If you need help with references until then, you may contact us at the information desk or via e-mail:


You are welcome to book a time for tutoring in referencing External link.. All tutoring is now on the web due to the pandemic. When the booking is complete you will receive a booking confirmation with the name of the librarian you will meet. We send you a link for a video conference call to your email and you log on to a computer to start the video call. Drop in sessions are currently suspended, and we have therefore increased the bookable slots.

During the tutoring session, the librarian will help you with, for example, referencing according to Harvard, Oxford or APA. This is a teaching session focused on your learning, so that you later can work independently on your own.

How do I write references? Where do I find research for my essay? What is a scholarly article? How do I find good search terms? How do I get more relevant results in the databases? These are some of the common questions we get while tutoring. You are very welcome to book an appointment.
