Södertörn University has converted to distance education – no teaching on university premises from Wednesday 18 March

The Swedish Government recommends that after 18 March all higher education institutions move to distance education. Södertörn University has followed this recommendation and there will be no teaching on university premises until further notice. This is likely to apply throughout the spring semester. All written examinations will be replaced by other forms of examination for the entire spring semester. Students are asked to stay updated about their course or programme via SH-StudyWeb. Staff and students can access the university premises with their keycards and both Infocenter and the library are open.

Tutoring in information seeking and references

We welcome all your questions in our prebooked tutor sessions, and we have increased the number of sessions to meet your needs. All sessions are now given via the online tool Zoom. As usual, go to the booking systemexternal link to book a session. Contact via biblioteket@sh.se.

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

Drop in

From 27 january to 4 june, the library offers drop in tutoring in the Info Workshop UB 517:

  • Monday 14.00-16.00
  • Thursday 10.00-12.00

Drop in with your questions about information seeking or referencing without having to book a time. You are welcome to attend several times.

If there is a queue when you arrive – sign your name on the reservation list outside and come back later. Each student then receives a maximum of 20 minutes tutoring session.

Book a time

You can also book a time for tutoring in information seeking. We now also offer tutoring on the web. 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. There are three bookable times per week and you choose if you want it in the library, in the Info Workshop UB 517 or on the web:

  • Tuesday 14.00-15.00
  • Wednesday 14.00-15.00
  • Friday 10.00-11.00

Use our booking system to book a time. Go to the booking systemexternal link (sign in with your SH-account or RKH-account). When the booking is complete you will receive a booking confirmation with the name of the librarian you will meet.

For our students

We offer one-to-one tutoring for students at Södertörn University (SH) and the Swedish Red Cross University College (RKH) who are writing essays and other assignments. During the tutoring session, the librarian will help you with, for example, searching for and evaluating scholarly articles. This is a teaching session focused on your learning, so that you later can work independently on your own.

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? How do I write references? These are some of the common questions we get while tutoring. You are very welcome to book an appointment.

Learn more

In our library search guide, you can learn more about how to search effectively for scholarly literature. Go to the search guide.

Need more help?

If you need help with other aspects of studying, such as writing academic texts or how to structure your studies, you can always contact the Study Support Unit, if you are a student at SH or RKH. You can find more information about them and how to make an appointment on page Study Support Unit.

For our staff

The library also offers one-to-one tutoring for our researchers, PhD students, teachers and other staff at SH and RKH. The tutoring should be linked to teaching and learning, research or other university related matters. For example, you can book a time to:

  • Increase your knowledge on how to search for and monitor information in relation to your doctoral thesis, research application or research project.
  • Keep yourself up-to-date with relevant databases in your subject area.
  • Get a short introduction on how to use the reference management programs EndNote and Zotero.

You can book a time in the booking system or email us at infosok@sh.se for an alternative time. The tutoring takes place in the Info Workshop UB 517 in the library or in your office. We also offer guidance on the web.
