    • Our Information Literacy Sessions • did start in 2001 • have two principles: „learning by doing“, „keep it simple“ • are held by 2 librarians • last 90 minutes • are not subject specific
    • Goals: What Pupils should learn • that they are very welcome at Würzburg University Library • to use the library on their own – „help for self- help“ • searching the resources of the library • finding their way around in the library
    • Goals: Finding Books and Articles • search the catalogue for books and journals • search the catalogue for a topic • search a database for articles • library orientation
    • Method I: Question-Answer Play • basic introduction (Cephalonian Method) „Where are the books?“ „What does the the library offer?“ „When I need help, I…?“ • pupils get cards with the questions and they read them out to the group librarians answer (PowerPoint)
    • Method II: Pupils Work • searching for material • pupils get exercises Find books about „Computer Viruses“ Search the database IBZ for articles about ring tones for mobile phones • they should try to solve the tasks on their own – librarians are looking around and helping
    • Method III: Presentation • summary of the results, debriefing by the librarians • with PowerPoint-slides • further tips for writing the thesis • time for questions
    • Method IV: Library Tour • tour through the entrance hall, textbook collection and reading rooms • pupils find the books and journals they have searched in the catalogue before
    • Organizational Facts • the library has two computer-equipped training- rooms • number of colleagues: 15 librarians • standardized concept • sometimes workshops also for big groups
