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. Since the library now offers some asynchronous research courses on Moodle, the drop-in sessions are a good opportunity for greater focus on the specific questions and interests of your particular group. We are available to discuss the details with you in advance.


Digital flying visits

Depending on your needs and our capacities, librarians from our team can participate in a course session via zoom or by individual arrangement in other formats. We are also available to the students afterwards for questions via e-mail or can set up special Etherpads. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to



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

  •     Subject of the seminar
  •     Teaching language
  •     Preferred feedback channels (etherpad, e-mail)
  •     Preferred date and alternative date (April is already fully booked!)
  •     If zoom is not possible: which alternatives do you want?

We will then contact you for a more detailed arrangement.


Companion courses on Moodle

The introductory courses in library use and the basics of research from last year are still open to all students on Moodle. There are also courses available on the reference management programs Citavi, Zotero, and Mendeley. In addition, by the end of April, we will have at least one course on Moodle for each faculty that gives an introduction to subject-specific research and presents important databases. All library courses can be found on Moodle under > Semesterübergreifende Moodle-Kurse > Bibliothekskurse. The course list will be added to on an ongoing basis.
