A Christmas gift to our cooperation

The Swedish Library Association decided to give our cooperation this year's Christmas gift. It is a great honour for us and a recognition of all our joint efforts.

Keep your eyes and ears open!

The team leaders will get back to you, in the beginning of 2018, with the conceptualisation of how this gift is going to be shared within the UR Library Services.

Link to the Swedish Library Association webpage: where our cooperation is described (in Swedish).

Free illustrations

During the anti-plagiarism workshop we brought up illustrations and how important it is to make sure that you have permission to use the pictures you want as illustrations.
In 2015 a blogger made a compilation of places where you can find pictures which are free to use. There you can find many wonderful illustrations. It's usually appreciated if you mention who took the picture (or made the illustration) but it is not always a necessity.

Spotting fake news

The libraries have an important role to play when it comes to teaching our users how to evaluate the sources they find. These days we see more and more fake news circulating and the international Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) has made a poster on how to identify fake news. Feel free to download the poster, print it and share it with your users.
