Instruction

Our librarians provide training to the faculty and staff of the Research Department in the use of all DeLib resources, from use of the DeLib web site, to advanced database searching and the use of citation management software. Courses in particular resources are organized throughout the year, but many research personnel prefer to arrange one-on-one sessions that address their specific needs.

Besides providing training, the library staff also supports researchers in the performance of their work: helping with database searches, locating difficult-to-find information, formatting references, purchasing new resources or conducting systematic reviews.
