This seminar is primarily meant for PhD-students who have only just started with their research.

The UAntwerp library will give an introductory overview of the various resources the library offers (catalogue, databases, electronic journals, e-books, Discovery Service) and dives into the advanced search options of the databases PubMed and Web of Sciences.

Along the way workflow issues like organizing yourself via personal accounts, setting up (citation)alerts and using export functionalities are also discussed. Reference management software is touched upon, but the seminar is not designed as a course to learn how to work with this software. 

This is a hands on session in which you can apply the exercises that you will be given to your own research.

Specific questions and/or requests to have certain information resources and/or topics discussed, are always welcome! Send them in advance to
