INFOtelakka – Book a librarian

INFOtelakka, our book a librarian is a free service for SAMK students who need information for their thesis or other study projects. During the INFOtelakka session students learn to use research databases and to retrieve information using different search strategies and methods.

Activating teaching method

SAMK librarians guide individual students or small groups in searching information for their assignment, in narrowing the search and in considering different search terms. The students gain confidence in using high quality research databases and other electronic and printed material as sources of information. Instead of finding the information for the students our aim is to train the student to select the best information sources available and to make better queries, thereby saving time and improving the quality of their academic assignments.



Guidance is given via SAMK HILL platform. The campus librarians:

  • The Fine Arts Library and Kuninkainen: Elina Laineenoja
  • Pori: Teppo Hjelt
  • Rauma: Katrin Kippasto
