Help for student literature reviews

Finally, the library’s online course “Student literature reviews in medicine and health sciences” is published on MittUiB. The course is intended for students in medicine and health sciences writing a literature review as their bachelor or master’s thesis. It is open accessible, in Norwegian and English. We have also included a module for advisors. The course was published in September 2023, and is easy to find at the medical library’s webpages about courses and guidance.

The course is divided into modules according the different steps in the work with a literature review: searching, project proposal, documentation, screening, dealing with search results, team work, quality assessment, data extraction and writing. We also present some digital tools as databases, EndNote, and how to use rayyan, which contains an AI-component.

The target groups for this course are mainly bachelor students and master students who write a literature review. However, the course contains practical guides which could be useful for researchers doing a systematic review, and a specific module for advisors.

As advisors, you may have some thoughts about this course? It is newly published, and we are happy to get feedback from you.

Please, have a look, and discuss with your colleagues.

Kind regards from the Medical library
Barbara, Christine, Ida and Regina

Procedures for sick leave

Today, I have just a short reminder for you. The influenza season is approaching, in addition to the ongoing round of COVID-19. This may lead to absences that require self-reporting and medical certificates. When you have sick leave, please remember the following procedures:

  1. Inform your supervisor.
  2. Report self-reported absences through the self-service portal under “Time” and “Leave requests.”
  3. If you have a medical certificate, whether in paper or digital form:
    • Paper: Submit Part C and Part D filled out and signed to your supervisor. Remember to fill out the self-declaration form. Your unit should then forward the medical certificate to the Service Team for Absences and Parental Leave.
    • Digital: Send it to your employer via Your NAV on the first day of your absence. Apply for sickness benefits when you receive a message from NAV.

Many people forget to notify their immediate supervisor, but it is crucial to remember this!

Have a great weekend!
