Current workshops on offer (for everybody!)

Group instructions for your students

The university library is the right partner for improving your students’ search and referencing skills. 

We offer tailor made training and workshops at any desired level (bachelor, premaster, master, PhD students). Teachers can also come up with their own 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 our training, so students can directly use their newly acquired knowledge. The instructions are given by our own library information specialists.

A few of the possibilities:

  • A tour through the library, including the library classification system, how to borrow, print and scan.
  • Introduction in general library databases like RUQuest, Google Scholar, subject specific databases like Web of Science, Reaxys and MathSciNet, the difference between scientific and non-scientific literature and plagiarism.
  • Creating a correct bibliography, with information about reference styles (APA, ACS, Nature, etc), and reference managers (EndNote, Mendeley, etc).
  • Creating a research management plan (for theses, especially dissertations).
