On the February 28th February and 7th March grade 11 as part of their Extended Essay preparation attended a workshop hosted by the Württembergische State Library. The workshop is aimed specifically at students studying for the Abitur/IB.
With 3.8 million holdings the Wuertemberg State Library houses one of the largest collections in the state after the University Libraries of Freiburg, Heidelberg and Tuebingen.
As well an introduction to the services offered the students were given useful tips on how to pepare themselves for online searching, shown how to search the Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) for both print and digital information and how to access the huge database collection.
Many thanks to the Landesbibliothek Stuttgart who kindly offered the workshop in English language for the first time.
