Information competence is one of the key qualifications that students are supposed to acquire. In the context of sophisticated training courses the University library imparts necessary skills for effective information research step-by-step. This ranges from selecting suitable search methods, via developing a research strategy up to and including collection and management of information. These skills contribute to higher quality of search results and thus to academic work in general.

The training courses are built up on one another, content-wise and thematically, and are open to any interested party. In addition, tutors and teachers of the University may book individual courses and integrate them into their own lectures.

In addition to the face-to-face trainings the library has developed comprehensive eTutorials for the transmission of information competence in cooperation with the ZIMT (Zentrum für Informations- und Medientechnologie).
Besides "Searching in the library locally" the main focus of the tutorials is the thematic research and with this the specific search for information for seminar, term and final papers.
