Welcome to our Language & Search Lab!

Did you know that you can get help with your difficult searches, reference questions or help with the difficult academic language? Every Thursday between 12 pm and 15 pm there is a language teacher and one or two librarians who usually work with information search in room J441.

Long time ago we had a language lab and a search lab in the library, but since many questions slip into each other, it felt practical and beneficial to be able to help with both search and reference questions while at the same having a language pedagogical supervision. So in 2016, we merged the language and the search lab and have it once a week. On Mondays and Wednesdays, it’s only the language lab in room J441.

You do not need to book in advance. It is Drop-In. Many students visit Language and search Lab time to time and sometimes we have many students at the same time, witch means that you may have to wait for help. You can log in to a computer in the room and work while you are waiting.
