These training sessions are carried out in small groups, with a maximum of 20 participants in each.

    Lasting approximately 90 minutes, these sessions are divided into 3 parts:

    1. Research Methodology: "theoretical" part (definitions, how to carry out relevant research and evaluate sources and results, rules for writing a bibliography)
    2. Introduction to Research:

    - Electronic resources (databases, e-journals, e-books) Bachelor and Master level.
    3. Practical exercises in the library (Bachelor level) or in the computer labs for training on databases.
