Help from the library

Our libraries may offer individual or group guidance to students and employees at NTNU. The main areas we offer help in are information searches and literature, correct use of sources, reference management software, copyright, open science and data mangement plans. Some of our libraries also offer guidance in Cristin for employees and PhD research fellows.

Contact your local library to set up a session with a librarian. You need to use a separate form to book a help session at the Gjøvik Library.
