Research

Approximately 30 researchers and around 20 doctoral students work here conducting research within different areas, something that is without equal in other research environments within the field.

We work actively with international collaborations; therefore our researchers participate in a number of international networks and conferences, for example iSchools, and we have close collaborations with external actors. Moreover, we work with development projects conducted with libraries and other information-intensive organisations.

Our research is closely linked to our educational programmes at all levels (Bachelor’s, Master’s, and doctoral) so that all students can benefit from research findings.
