Subject Librarians: your go-to-contact

UBL has assigned a Subject Librarian or Medical Information Specialist to each department and program who provides in-depth assistance for teachers. They can help you with:

  • guidance on how to use library collections in your courses (such as placing texts in Brightspace)
  • purchase requests
  • putting together an information literacy programme for students, e.g. on how to set up a literature review and assess information
  • support on open access, registration of publications, datamanagement, digitalisation and more

Getting started

You'll need a LU-Card to borrow books, print or copy and to get access to the libraries.
