Nowadays, scientific information is no longer limited to the library shelves. The majority of research publications can be accessed (exclusively) through online journals, e-books, and databases on the Internet. The website of the University Library serves as the gateway to this information. It is important that you can effectively use the tools offered there. Therefore, the University Library also focuses on providing training in information literacy.
The modularly structured information package on the library website serves as a primary resource for this purpose. You will find guidelines about information sources and search strategies, the use of several practical tools that can make your research easier, and how to evaluate and use information in your own papers and publications.
Additionally, the University Library organizes specific introduction and work sessions for students, doctoral candidates, and postdocs from different faculties and schools. The offerings for bachelor's and master's students are developed in collaboration with the program coordinators to align with the students' needs. The introduction to information literacy is coupled with practical literature studies.
