Arrange a zoom meeting:
You also have the possibility to be advised in a one-to-one zoom meeting. In conversation, via chat or by sharing screen content, we can answer your questions and topics in a targeted and individual way. Above all, the possibility of screen sharing makes it easier to point out individual explanations and search steps, which often cannot be explained adequately by telephone or e-mail. You will receive useful information and tips on questions such as:
- Library services and holdings of the ZB MED
- Searches in LIVIVO and other databases
- Access to electronic media of ZB MED
This service is available Monday - Friday from 9.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m.. You can make an appointment at short notice by telephone (+49 (0)221 - 478 5685) or by e-mail.
