Consult a librarian
Need help with information searching on Africa? Book one of our librarians for a 30 minute consultation.
During a half-hour appointment you will receive an introduction to our library, assistance in finding the best keywords for your information search, or advice on useful internet sources. This service also caters to students with special needs.
In general it's preferable to do consultations on-site in our library, but during the current phase of the ongoing pandemic we do it only via Zoom.
Book at least 5 days in advance and provide us with the following information:
- Your research topic and your help needs. So we can prepare.
- Date and time. When do you want to do it? Give a few alternatives.
- On-site or via Zoom? Currently you can only choose Zoom.
- Name and contact info. So we can reach you and confirm the booking.

We are not doing any on-site consultations during this period in the current pandemic.
These consultations can be carried out in a group if there are others who share your area of interest.
