Background and activities

I am a research librarian at The Lysholm library, the library providing services primarily to the teacher education faculty. I am responsible for teaching and research support, so get in touch if you are interested in a collaboration. 



  • Teaching
  • Research support
  • Desk duty


Available courses:

  • Literature search
  • Source criticism
  • NVivo
  • Referring and siting (primarily APA)
  • Reference mangement systems (EndNote)
  • Information literacy

This is the courses developed at this time, talk to me if this does not cover what you are looking for and we will figure something out. Everything is adaptable, and the lectures are usually most rewarding for the students if they can be related to and integrated in the rest of the education.



I have a master Library and information sciences from 2014, and university and university college pedagogy from Queen Maud University College from 2017.


Research areas:

  • Librarians as educators
  • Flipped classroom
  • Librarians as researchers
  • Systematic literature review
  • Source criticism/information evaluation 
  • Information literacy
  • Quality in literature
  • Digital promotion of literature
