Rise and shine with the library

"Rise and shine" is a series of presentations by the library, mainly for researchers and doctoral students. The presentations are sometimes of a more general nature, such as overviews of particular areas of interest. Others are more concrete, introducing particular functions or processes. However, all of them are meant to be interesting and useful for researchers and doctoral students.

If you can't make any of the times offered, you are welcome to get in touch with the library. We will set up a meeting with you, your research group, or perhaps your faculty. We would be happy to come, so get in touch and we'll plan something together! When you book a presentation, you'll decide if the presentation should be held in Swedish or English. Contact us by email biblioteket@hb.se.

Time: 08:15 – 08:35 (with time for questions afterwards)
