Göttingen State and University Library: Help desk XXL

Stressed out over your term paper? Useful literature seemingly untraceable? Having problems with citations? Then come to our Help Desk XXL at the Göttingen State and University Library!

On two afternoons during the summer holidays you can simply drop by and get any questions on research and writing off your chest. Students of all faculties and subjects are advised on literature search, reference management, statistics, as well as writing process and text composition.

The Help Desk offers help with basic literature search and more advanced literature retrieval including the use of subject-specific databases. In this drop-in session, you can seek advice on organising your sources and formatting citations with the help of reference management programmes, while experts from the International Writing Centre offer assistance with structuring your text or formulating your research question.

New: You can also have statistical questions regarding your term paper clarified with experts from 14:00 to 16:00.

The Help Desk XXL is organised jointly by the the Göttingen State and University Library, the International Writing Centre (ISZ), the advisory centre of the Faculty of Social Sciences, and the Centre for Statistics.
