Library courses for students, BTU staff and interested people Library and information competencies for academic studies and working life

The University Library offers a variety of library courses on acquiring information competencies and working scientifically.

Please note: During the winter semester 2021/22 you can use our self-study courses in Moodle. Additionally we offer a number of dates as online courses (live) via BigBlueButton (Link to all live and self-study courses). If in-house courses are available, you will find the information on our single course websites. Please take the current handling conditions regarding in-house events and contact tracing from the website of BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg.

Please register in Moodle. Courses are free of charge for everybody. Most courses are offered also in English. Certificates of attendance can be issued.

Booking of individual course appointments is possible. Additionally, for an individual consultation, we recommend our online service Ask an expert.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our courses!
