You have picked your research question but are not sure where and how you may find the appropriate literature? You can take a number of approaches to your search:
- Searching in electronic catalogues or databases: principal steps are outlined in an online-tutorial „Effizient recherchieren“ (compiled by the university library of Konstanz)
- Using search engines on the net: how to find useful academic information is explained in the video-tutorial „Einstiege ins Internet“ (compiled by Lotse (ULB Münster))
Reference management programmes help you to organize and proceed collected citations, we help you selecting an appropriate one before you start your research.
