We provide library and information services

Library Skills Training

The library offers both classes in information retrieval and individual consultation for students and staff at Arcada.

Classes in Information Retrieval

There are classes in information retrieval skills integrated in all degree programmes. The information skills classes gives you an introduction to available databases and how to use different search techniques. The classes are an integrated part of ordinary courses and you will find information about this in the course descriptions.

Arcada's course Introduction to Academic studies contains also study material about seeking information.

Individual Tutorials in Information Retrieval

Do you have difficulties in finding relevant information sources for your studies? You are welcome to ask for help and advice when looking for literature or information in our databases and Internet resources.

You can also make a reservation for individual consulting in information retrieval, a session that will last about an hour.

Fees for external customers (see fines and fees)
