In the course of its Teaching Library program, the University Library of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna offers introductory courses, seminars and events in order to impart information literacy.

This program comprises not only introductory courses for new students on how to use the library or expert trainings in e-media research, but also seminars in academic writing and publishing in the digital age for current and future Academy lecturers. These courses focus on accessing, evaluating, and processing information, and on how to handle such information responsibly. Why can we use many databases free of charge; (how) is information evaluated; what does peer-reviewed mean, and what is an Impact Factor; why is Google so popular and what dangers lurk there? The programs are tailored to the respective target audiences, and scripts are provided to enable participants to deepen their knowledge through self-study. The aim is to equip course participants with the abilities and skills they require to cope with the demands of our information and knowledge society.
