You are welcome to arrange an individual, free consultation session with us, either to be held online via MS Teams or in person in the Main Library. A consultation can take up to 60 minutes.

We help you optimize your search strategy (finding search terms, combining different search terms and choosing suitable search fields) or assess with you which search tools other than the UB Catalogue might be of help as well. Additionally we will gladly answer your questions concerning how to obtain literature.
Please note that we cannot give you concrete recommendations for literature or any reviews of found literature. For questions concerning your scientific methodology please consider turning to your academic advisor or the Writing Center of Bayreuth University.

We offer this service not only to members of the University, students as well as staff, but also to other interested external users.
