What's up

KI will move all student accounts currently in Office365 to the same version used by KI's staff. It is very important that you move your files manually from Teams and SharePoint.
We are now simplifying loan periods for course books and removing day loan periods. Instead, all course books will have a seven day loan period.
Spring is here and it's time for the verification process – that is, all researchers at Karolinska Institutet and/or Region Stockholm are requested to log in to the bibliometric database Thursday May 20 at the latest.
On this page we will gather current information about the library services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now all students can download the speech synthesis program TorTalk to their own computer. Speech synthesis is used to convert text to speech, and can be extra helpful if you find it difficult to read plain text.
