(Desk)research Support hour

Get help with searching

Are you stuck on your search for information? Do you find it tricky using the databases? Do you not know which search terms to use? Is it difficult compiling a literature list? Do you have doubts about the reliability of a source? Visit our (Desk)research Support hour, and find out!

For whom is it?

During (Desk)research Support all students and staff are welcome at the libraries for questions about searching and using sources. Here are some examples:

  • Referring to literature for your thesis or research paper
  • Using sector data for your business plan
  • Looking up news articles in order to research a trend

Of course you can visit the libraries and ask your questions during opening hours, but during (Desk)research Support we have made time for you especially, so you are guaranteed help right away.

What will we discuss?

We can help you get started looking for relevant and reliable information for your assignment or research. We give advice about our selection, using databases and catalogues. We also offer help setting up a research strategy, or give tips on using references.

When can you drop by?

Each week you can visit the library for (Desk)research Support at set times. Registering ahead of time is not necessary. You can report at the information desk and you will be helped in order. Together with an information specialist you get started with your questions. If you are not completely finished, then you can make a follow-up appointment. At the times listed below you can visit (Desk)research Support at your library (not during school holidays). If you’re unable to attent at these times, please contact your library to request an appointment.
