Information seeking workshops

You can ask for one-to-one guidance performed by our information specialists. We will help you to find material - published in paper format or online - and to evaluate their applicability for your thesis. We will show you how to use online search engines and portals. Your skills in information literacy will be refreshed as well.

The guidance sessions are designed on your own wishes and needs. Usually the guidance session takes about an hour.

When taking contact, please provide the subject of your thesis and your other possible expectations on the guidance session.
