The online training course Compass will teach you the basics of searching for, getting access to, managing, referring to and using scientific information. After completing Compass, which takes about two hours, you will have a good basis in information literacy skills to get started with your assignment or thesis.

The training course consists of four modules, each taking about 30 minutes of your time. You can either take the entire course or work through each of these modules separately:

  1. Finding and accessing information
  2. Setting up your search
  3. Evaluating your sources
  4. Saving and using sources

You will earn a badge for each completed module. When you finish the entire training course, you will receive a super badge. With this badge you can show that you have successfully completed Compass whenever it is required for a course. Badges remain valid for the entire academic year.

The training is also available in Dutch.
