The Library offers students and employees at Umeå University and Västerbotten County Council one-on-one tutoring free of charge.

We answer questions about:

  • Information searching, for example, how to find scholarly articles
  • Citing information and using reference management programs
  • Academic writing, giving presentations and study skills – help available in English and Swedish from the undergraduate to the PhD level.

Tutoring is available in the library or via the Internet (if you are distance student). You should expect to receive a reply within 3 working days.
