About the teaching

KTH Library offers teaching in order to strengthen students’ academic skills in terms of the abilities to find, evaluate, collect and use scholarly information. Interaction and active learning are key words for our teaching and it is adapted to fit into different stages in KTH:s educational programs. Our experience is that teaching will be best if it is planned and designed in collaboration between the teacher and the librarian.

Our teaching is for free if it is performed in the library's facilities. If the teaching is performed in another facility at KTH the School will be responsible for the cost of the room.

We offer a short introduction to KTH Library’s resources and teaching on different levels in the programs. Would you like to book KTH Library’s introduction or teaching? Use our booking form .
