Get support for your thesis and essays

The Library offers tips, lunch workshops and individual advice on searching and referencing information sources.

The Library works with the Wageningen Writing Lab to assist students in both finding and managing information for their theses or essays. This support does not replace regular teaching in information literacy but supplements it.

Online tutorials and tips

The For students pages at the Library website help students to find online content on various topics, such as searching for literature, citing and plagiarism, and reference managent tools. The e-learning modules are a good tool to interactively learn the basics of information literacy.

Workshops and demos

Students can attend lunch workshops, demos and courses offered by the Library. Consult the calendar to the right or go to the Courses and demos pages.

Appointment with an information specialist

If students need individual support for theses and essays, they can contact an information specialist by filling in this form. Depending on the question, an information specialist will answer by mail or make an appointment with the student.

Wageningen Writing Lab

Wageningen students can get personal help in academic writing at the Wageningen Writing Lab. Students are coached in one-to-one sessions with a trained tutor. The sessions are intended to help students to recognise and to understand their strengths and weaknesses in writing texts as well as to teach them to evaluate and to improve their texts and writing process. The service is free for students. Students may use the Writing Lab as often as they need. 

In addition, Wageningen Writing Lab organizes workshops on important aspects of writing like planning a writing assignment, revising your text and writing styles.
