Self-study course in MOODLE

Information Searching Skills

This is a self-study course you can take to familiarise yourself with TalTech library services, to know how to find relevant information to studies and how to avoid plagiarism.


Come to a consultation

Consultations are for one-on-one guidance on finding literature for writing your graduation thesis, how to use databases, or other information searching needs. The consultation will be carried out by a Subject Librarian. This service is free to TalTech students, researchers, lecturers, and other staff.
The consultation lasts up to 1 hour and is conducted either in the library or online in MS Teams.
