Book tutoring in information seeking

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.

Closed for summer 2020

From 5 June to 30 august, our one-to-one-tutoring service is closed. For help with information searches or references, please email biblioteket@sh.se.

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.
