Course / training

How to find your way to relevant information in the post truth era, where false media and opinions seem to dominate fact? In this interactive workshop we learn to judge websites, use Google effectively and to recognize scientific literature.  We deal with the principles of literature searching and how to construct search strategies using subject databases. As a result you will come up with a much more comprehensive literature list for your paper.

Students, employees and researchers with need for tutoring in finding literature

Free for VU University students, faculty and staff, for others see costs of services (pdf).
