Booked consultations for students

As a student at Karolinska Institutet, you can book a one-hour consultation in information searching. For the time being, all support takes place via Zoom. During a meeting, a librarian can help you find appropriate serach words, structure the search strategy and select databases for your topic. We can also support you in the use of reference managing in EndNote Online and Zotero, though that support does not extend to technical problems. Please contact EndNote Online’s own support or Zoteros own support if you experience technical issues.

Please cancel any booked consultation you cannot attend so that someone else can book it instead.

We recommend that you take a look at the web page Searching for information before the meeting.

Booked consultations for researchers/doctoral students

If you are a researcher or doctoral student at KI, you can book a consultation in various matters regarding information retrieval or reference managing. For the time being, all support takes place via Zoom.


You can also attend workshops in information searching and reference management held by the library.
