Flying Visit

The Library Stops By - Visiting Your Seminar (winter semester)

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 come to your event and present research strategies and tools appropriate to the seminar topic. Other library services such as interlibrary loan or the use of reference management programs can also be covered on request. The "Stippvisite" is also an opportunity to address specific questions and interests of your group. We are happy to discuss the details with you in advance.

Depending on your requirements and our capacity, it is possible for our colleagues to attend an event flexibly either in person or via Zoom. Other formats are also possible by individual arrangement.

You can either book a visit via the team email address or by contacting the contact person below. In order to help us with planning, we ask that you register at least four weeks before the desired date. Please also answer the following questions:

  •     Topic of the seminar
  •     Your preferred date - Dez 2022 - Feb 2023 (Okt/Nov with limitations, see below)
  •     Alternative date
  •     Desired duration of the visit
  •     Language of instruction
  •     Visit in person or via Zoom

We will then contact you for more detailed arrangements. Please understand that we are not able to fulfill every request, especially for the first weeks of lectures the requested appointments sometimes exceed our capacity. The earlier you book our visit, the more likely it is that we will be able to accommodate your request and meet your scheduling needs. We are happy to accept scheduling requests for the 2022/23 winter semester beginning Aug 22nd 2022.

Limitations for the winter semester

For capacity reasons, we can only offer flying visits in the winter semester from November onwards. 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 special courses for these students.

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