Library courses and guided tours For students, BTU staff and interested persons

Library courses

We offer a variety of library courses teaching how to use our services and work scientifically.

Attention: At the moment we don't offer courses in our library buildings. However, you are welcome to register for a course in Moodle. Depending on the topic, online seminars via Big Blue Button are also possible. Just ask us! Do you want an individual consulting? You can book a date about Ask an expert.

The participation is free. Most courses are also offered in English. By request, we can issue a certificate of attendance for you.

The library at Central Campus Cottbus offers a number of fixed dates during every semester, some of them in English. Please register for these courses. Courses in English language can also be arranged individually for groups of students. Please contact us.
