Library Tutorial

Library Tutorial in English is available in the old Koppa pages.
At the moment, we are updating and transferring Library Tutorial here.

Library Tutorial guides you in academic information seeking. Unlike everyday information searches, information seeking for research is not just simple fact-checking or quick browsing. It is a planned, justified and step-by-step process that is an integral part of research.

  • Library Tutorial is an open self-study website for information seeking implemented by the Open Science Centre (Library) of the University of Jyväskylä. It also serves as study material for the information seeking courses.

The basic idea of the Library Tutorial comes from Carol Kuhlthau's information seeking process model, which we have developed together with students to suit the needs of our own university.
