Guide for literature search and academic work (LOTSE)

LOTSE was created under the leadership of ULB Münster as a cooperation project involving the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin library. It is a general and subject-specific online information system for academic research purposes. Although the project was completed in 2016, there are still video tutorials and interdisciplinary information regarding academic work available from ULB Münster.
