Articles and more - Database Research

Each subject matter has its characteristics - and its own sources of information. We will show you how you can find current research results, how to present the most important databases of your field of study, and give you hints about research strategies.

The database introductory course is obligatory for students of English and American Studies and Romance Studies. It is recommended for students of Germans Studies and Slavic Studies.

Procedure

The introductory database course consists of two parts: an E-Learning-module and a subject-specific tutorial. The E-Learning-Module only has to be completed once in total, the tutorial has to be completed for each subject.

You can work independently on the materials for the subject-specific tutorial. We will provide the learning materials on the Virtual Campus. Alternatively, you can also participate in an in-person session. If you want to participate in person, please register for a session in the Virtual Campus.

Participation in one of the general introductory events of the university library does not replace this course!
