Training sessions and workshops

Blackboard course on information literacy

In Blackboard you can find a course called ‘Informatievaardigheden’, offering students the essentials on using information efficiently with an elaborate self-study tutorial, news, tips, and much more. For the moment the course is only available in Dutch however.

Online question time

  • Are you having difficulties with searching information?
  • Do you have questions about certain databases?
  • Don't you know where and/or how to look up books or journals?
  • Is it unclear how you can get to the full text of scientific articles?

... then the online question time might be right for you!

Once each month the library will be online in the afternoon (12:30 - 13:30).

You can ‘come round’ with your own questions or listen to the questions of others.

Check the library’s calendar for the exact dates and participation links.

No need to register in advance. Remember to sit somewhere quiet (at home or anywhere else). Both image and audio are transmitted via the computer, so a telephone is not necessary.

Open Library courses

Throughout the year, the library organizes open training sessions on searching and using scientific information. The following subjects are treated:

  • Google Scholar
  • Locating documents via catalogue and Discovery Service
  • Web of Science
  • PubMed
  • Advanced searching
  • Reference management in EndNote

Check the library’s calendar for the exact dates and participation links. You can follow one session of your interest or choose to participate in the whole series. If you attend each lesson in this series, we gradually build up from basic to advanced use.

The whole course is alternately given in Dutch or in English. Everyone can participate. No need to register in advance.

All lessons are organized as online webinars, using ‘Blackboard Collaborate'. Both image and audio are transmitted via the computer.

Recordings of the online sessions will be available on Mediasite.

Individual appointment

Still not sure after consulting all the above tools and resources? Need help with a systematic review or some other complex search query?

Then we will gladly make time to took into it together. Book an individual appointment with a librarian online.

For systematic reviews the library can help you with your search query, search terms and search strategy, but not with the selection/quality assesment of the literature found. More information can be found here.
