It´s getting serious!
Now into the second semester of their IB Diploma course, 11th grade students are starting their Extended Essay preparation and as part of this attended a workshop hosted by the Württembergische State Library on the 28th of February and 7th of March.
The workshop is aimed specifically at students studying for the Abitur and the IB Diploma. As well an introduction to the services offered the students were given useful tips on how to prepare 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. With 3.8 million holdings the Württembergische State Library houses one of the largest collections in the state after the University Libraries of Freiburg, Heidelberg and Tübingen.
Many thanks to the Landesbibliothek Stuttgart who kindly offered the workshop in English language for the first time. We look forward to seeing how the Extended Essays develop and wish our 11th graders happy researching!
