At the library we produce bibliometrics primarily for the annual report and for the distribution of funds. Using bibliometrics you can, for example, watch patterns in publication or citations from an article or an author.

Reference management apps

If you need help with reference management the library can support you via the application Mendeley which comes in a free version.

Interlibrary loans and purchase requests
