Help desk XXL

Stressed out over your term paper? Useful literature seemingly untraceable? Can’t get the hang of statistics? Having problems with citations?
Then come along to our Help Desk XXL at the Göttingen State and University Library to:

  • consult competent advisors that can help with literature search, reference management, statistics as well as writing process, text composition and formatting;
  • have a cup of coffee, cookies, tea, or mineral water.

We offer 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. Our experts also advise you on MS Word and MS Excel (e. g. formatting).

You can also clarify statistical questions (planning, interpretation, evaluation) regarding your thesis or term paper with experts.
