Regarding the novel coronavirus: The University of Borås has extended yellow level until 8 November. Yellow level means that university operations are to continue but that physical contact should be minimised as much as possible. The university has moved over to online instruction as far as possible. Stay updated.



The Swedish School of Library an Information Science (SSLIS) is one of a kind in Sweden. Within Library and Information Science, our research, programmes and courses are the most extensive in the country, and are being developed in close interaction with the global society around us.

The idea behind our work is that work practices and scientific approaches are two interwoven perspectives which enrich each other, just as research and education do.

The challenges for the library and information science are tangible and exciting. Cross-disciplinary collaborations provide new opportunities to develop relevance to the profession.

Åsa Söderlind, Head of department at the Swedish School of Library of Information Science

Students, teachers and researchers who come to us will broaden their horizons, create new contacts and contribute to developing an environment which is already outstanding. SSLIS is a place where trade, industry and society meet in cross-boundary cooperation. As a student here, you will have opportunities to develop an international perspective through overseas studies as well as through contact with teachers, researchers, projects and other students with international backgrounds and connections.

Have a look at our thematic page to see examples of how we work, and what we work with:
