Tailor made library workshops
The university library is the right partner for improving your students’ search and reference skills.
We offer tailor made trainings at any desired level (bachelor, premaster, master, PhD students). But teachers can also come up with suggestions to develop a course. Instructions and workshops are often embedded in curricula. Sometimes a case or assignment, provided by the teacher, is used in the training, so students can directly use their newly acquired knowledge. The instructions are given by subject specialists of the library.
A few of the possibilities:
- A tour through the library, including the classification system of the library, how to borrow, print and scan.
- Introduction in general library databases like RUQuest, Google Scholar, and the difference between scientific and non-scientific literature.
- Creating a correct bibliography, with information about reference styles (APA, Chicago, Vancouver, etc), and reference managers (EndNote, Mendeley, etc).
- Creating a research management plan (for theses, especially dissertations).

The library instructions are given in the well-equipped instruction room of the Central Library, including PCs for the students. The instruction room is located on the first floor (+1), behind the Coffee Corner.
Individual instructions (for everyone!)
In addition to group instructions, we also offer individual instructions for everyone; students, teachers and researchers. A basic instruction in the use of the various library databases, or help with a specific literature search? The individual instructions are tailor made.
You are welcome for an individual instruction.
