The goal of our courses is to aid Stockholm University's
students, teachers and researchers in developing their skills in
searching, critical examination and creative use of scientific
information. These skills are usually labelled "information
literacy". The Swedish Law of Higher Education (Chapter 1, § 9)
states that: "Within the educational field concerned, the students,
in addition to knowledge and skills, shall develop the ability to
seek and evaluate knowledge on a scientific level follow the
development of knowledge"
The Bologna Process has this competency defined as one of
general knowledge, i.e. a generic/transferable skill.

Our course rate is SEK 1060 per classroom hour (45 minutes). The
Basic Information Retrieval Course, a tutorial on our website, is

We offer courses for small groups (maximum 15 students per
