The National Library of Luxembourg (BnL) is organising several introductory workshops to support users in their online research.
On 1 April 2019, the BnL began the relocation of its physical collections to its new building in Luxembourg-Kirchberg. Whilst access to these collections will be limited during this move, the BnL's digital resources will remain accessible 24/7. This digital offer brings together 620,000 e-books of all kinds, 77,800 e-journals, 390 databases and over 1,800,000 digitised pages from eluxemburgensia.
In order to help users with these digital resources, the BnL is offering the following workshops:
