Workshops Information Literacy

The library offers a wide variety of customized information literacy sessions geared towards teaching students how to locate, evaluate, use and produce information effectively.


We work closely with teaching staff to develop workshops that best meet student's research needs. Our sessions include:

  • Searching scholarly information
  • Evaluating information sources
  • Preventing plagiarism workshop
  • Thesis Workshop
  • Using the Special Collections
  • EndNote

For more information see our complete portfolio information literacy courses or please contact  helpdesk@library.leidenuniv.nl.

Teaching librarians customize each information literacy session to the specific needs and culture of your class and students. The following guidelines help ensure we create effective learning experiences:

  • Contact us at least two weeks before you’d like an instruction session. 
  • Sessions are free of charge.
  • We strongly encourage you to be present for each instruction session. In our experience students are more engaged and have a more meaningful time in a library session when you are present. (Plus, we’ve had faculty tell us how much they learned about library resources and services, too!)
  • Sessions are most effective when held during class time.
  • Students benefit most when they have an existing class assignment in which they will use the principles we teach.
  • Since our instruction is tailored to each individual course and assignment, we will need information about your class to help us determine the best content and instruction approach.
