Our Training and Consulting Services

You are writing a thesis or homework and need help with the literature organization? Or you would like to know more about the offer of the university library? And what is Open Access? The University Library's training courses will show you where and how you can find, manage and quote literature online and on-site. In addition, we are happy to answer your questions about your library account, the access to databases and online research portals.


List of reference Literature in HoWeR
The new function of the reference collection can be used for the practical listing of the literature recommendations of teachers for students. Just look in the right navigation bar in HoWeR under "Handapparate" and click on the teacher of your choice. That´s the quick and easy way to find your literature for the current semester.

New library bags
In order to conveniently take work materials, notebooks and books with you to the library, there are beautiful, transparent and, above all, reusable library bags in the design of the HWR Berlin. In cooperation with the young Berlin start-up UNIVEND they are offered for sale in the foyer in House B and in the locker room of the library in a vending machine, which also offers other useful details, from pens to USB sticks. We are pleased to provide you with this environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to the previous plastic bags and look forward to your feedback.

HoWeR: Library account in an improved view
In our research portal HoWeR, the library account is now displayed in an improved view. For pre-orders and branch orders, clicking on "To Catalog" will bring a pop-up window where you can conveniently use the functions of your library account. In addition, we were able to improve the visibility of open access, f.e. freely available publications, by using an open access link in the result list. Pay close attention to the open access symbol in the result list during your research.

Database training from the summer semester 2019
In addition to the database offer of the university library, separate database trainings will follow in the summer semester of 2019. Webinars of the providers, which can also be used within the classroom, can be provided if required, eg at Euromonitor Passport and juris. Please contact hsb.cs(at)hwr-berlin.de.
