Stressing out over your term paper? Useful literature seemingly untraceable? Can’t get the hang of statistics? Having problems with citations? Questions concerning LaTex, BibTex or Python?
Then come along to our Help Desk XXL to:

  • consult our competent advisors who can help you with literature search and reference management, statistics as well as writing process, text composition and formatting, various programs and useful digital tools.
  • have some cookies.

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.

In addition, we are happy to advise you on scanning cleverly with your smartphone, on using our multifunction devices and we also show you how to use ChemDraw, LaTex, BibTex and Python for your work.
