Flying Visit

The library stops by - visiting your seminar (digital and on-site)

We offer a special service to the teaching staff of the university under the title "Stippvisite" (flying visit). A librarian from the Information Literacy team will support your class and present search strategies and tools like databases matching the seminar topic. Other library services such as interlibrary loan or the use of reference management programs can also be covered on request. We offer flying visits either digitally or on site.

Digital flying visits

Depending on your needs and our capacities, librarians from our team can either participate in a course session via zoom or we can provide presentation slides with audio recordings. Individually adapted formats are also possible by prior arrangement. We are also available to the students afterwards for questions via e-mail or we can set up special Etherpads. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to

On-Site flying visits

A librarian from the Information Literacy team will come to your class and present the search strategies and tools appropriate to the seminar topic. The visit can last 30-60 minutes depending on the scope of the topics.


To make planning easier for us, we ask you to make arrangements at least four weeks in advance for both forms of the flying visits. Please also answer the following questions:

Digital flying visit:

  •     Subject of the seminar
  •     desired format (zoom, audio slides, something else)
  •     teaching language
  •     preferred feedback channels (etherpad, e-mail)
  •     for flying visits live via zoom: preferred date and alternative date - Dec 2020 - Feb 2021 (Nov with restrictions)
  •     for a flying visit with dubbed slides or other asynchronous material: by when is the material needed

On-site flying visit:

  •     Topic of the seminar
  •     Your preferred date (November 2020 - February 2021)
  •     Alternative date
  •     Desired duration of the visit
  •     Language of instruction

We will then contact you for a more detailed arrangement.

We are happy to accept requests for visits for the winter semester 2020/21 from August 2020 onwards.

Restrictions for the winter semester

In the winter semester, we can only offer flying visits on-site or via Zoom from November onwards due to capacity reasons. We can only confirm appointments for November at the end of September/beginning of October, when our schedule for the Leuphana Semester has been completed. We do not visit courses that are part of the Leuphana Semester but we have a special course concept for these students: Introductory courses for first semester students.

Flying visits to bachelor colloquia and master forums are given priority in the winter semester.
