And the winner is "Ask an expert"!

Our new research consulting service starts today.

Last week we conducted a survey to find a name for our research consulting service. The title "Ask an expert" has just won.

Students, researchers and other interested parties who need practical help and tips regarding their workflows (e.g. searching for literature, managing research data, reference management or citing literature, publishing your work and much more) will be able to book an appointment with a person from our library who is an expert in the specific field of knowledge. For this purpose, a topic browser offers a selection of appointments. With just one click you can book an appointment with the advisor that matches your topic -- without the time-consuming back and forth of arranging appointments.
