Ann-Sofie Axelsson

Welcome to our School!

Greetings! As Head of SSLIS, which is a prominent research and teaching environment at the University of Borås I welcome your involvement in changing society, you have come to the right place! Let me explain more.

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.

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.

Welcome to SSLIS!
