In the modern information society, the sovereign handling of information, the so-called information literacy, is a key qualification whose relevance is constantly increasing. Information literacy consists of the following areas:

  • Defining information needs
  • Finding information
  • Evaluating information

We offer as part of our program for:

  • beginners (freshmen, bachelor students), 
  • advanced students (=bachelor and master students) and 
  • experts (researchers) 


  • library courses
  • learning videos and
  • guides.

These cover all four areas of information literacy at each knowledge level. So you learn relevant skills exactly when you need them.
