Stressing out over your term paper? Useful literature seemingly untraceable? Having problems with citations?
Then come along to our Help Desk XXL to:

  • consult our competent advisors who can help you with literature search and reference management as well as writing process and text composition,
  • 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.

From 14:00 to 16:00, you can also have statistical questions (planning, interpretation, evaluation) regarding your thesis or term paper clarified with experts.
