The SLU University Library is a vital support organisation for the university. The library is composed of two divisions: Scholarly Communication, and Research and Learning Support, respectively. Activities within the divisions are run in six teams.

The Division of Scholarly Communication aims to provide a high quality research information infrastructure for the SLU. It comprises three teams: The Publishing Team, responsible for the area of electronic and open access publishing, and bibliometric analyses, The Information Resources Team, responsible for the area of information retrieval and maintenance, and the Metadata Team, responsible for a high quality metadata level in all library information services.

The new publishing database, SLUpub, implemented during 2013, has been up and running for a year, presenting data for internal use as well as national evaluations. The university open archive is maintained by the Division of Scholarly Communication, and is constantly growing and much in demand, by researchers and external customers alike. A large number of bibliometric analyses have been performed for SLU use. The literature resources are constantly evaluated, to optimise the value for the university. In 2014 the library was involved in the development of a new database, TILDA, for filing and visualisation of SLU research data.

The Division of Research and Learning Support comprises three teams: The Research Support Team, responsible for the integration of library services in the research process, the Learning Support Team, supporting teachers and students in the area of information literacy, and the Customer Services Team, supporting all customers in the library building, as well as on the web.

A number of courses for research students have been arranged in the field of information retrieval and methods for scientific communication. The SLU University library has trained about 3000 students at Bachelor and Master levels during 2014. Web based learning platforms and customer services are constantly being tested and evaluated. One example is the library’s so called StudyLab, which offers workshops for students at all of our campuses, both IRL and in the form of video broadcasting. A number of seminars and other meetings with researchers and research groups have been arranged with the aim of strengthening publishing strategies and use of library services.

In 2014, the library participated in an international project, Innovative Doctoral Education for Global Food Security, with the aim of improving the quality and capacity of doctoral education at Makerere University in Uganda.

Our presence on Facebook and Twitter was strengthened in 2014, and our website has been made more accessible, with over a million visitors a year.

The SLU University economic turnover for 2014 was about 63 million SEK, and the number of employees 44.
