Orientation Days for the new Semester

At the start of each semester, in October and April, we welcome you to the Orientation Days of the University Libraries of the TU Berlin and the UdK Berlin. In various courses and library tours, we will offer answers to your questions about the services and resources offered by the library. We will give you tips for how to effectively use the library and successfully search literature.
