LOTSE: The Online Tutorial for Scholarly Work

The Library Online Tour & Self-Paced Education (LOTSE) is a collaboratively created online tutorial and guide on how to search for literature and conduct scholarly work.

So far we recommended the political science section of LOTSE. Unfortunately, the operation of LOTSE was discontinued at the end of 2016. The Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Münster has taken over some content. Information specific to Hamburg is, however, missing.

African Studies – Information Competence

The African Studies – Information Competence tutorial offers introductory information on literature search strategies and on accessing electronic resources and tools specifically for information on the sub-Saharan Africa region.
