  • zotero: search from zotero in library

    If you use zotero as your bibliography-tool, you might have wanted to quickly look up whether the document is available in your library, on amazon etc. Unfortunately the procedure to add these “look-up engines” is a bit complicated.

  • Guide to writing a bibliography

    Following the link below you will find a rather extensive guide to writing a bibliography. Especially for “non-standard” documents like discussion-forums and course material, I find it useful.

In this post, I want to very briefly present one particular project of digital humanities, more particularly digital philosophy! The […]

Ich habe folgende vier Plattformen getestet: OAIster Philpapers google scholar BASE Mein (sehr limitierter) Test bestand darin, die Stichworte “Guyer, Paul” und “Kant” einzugeben. Ich habe jeweils eine einfache Suche gemacht und eine fortgeschrittene […]

  • Explore (fr)

Pourtant pour certains cas, il vaut mieux commencer par une recherche dans Explore. Les avantages de cette interface par rapport au catalogue RERO: Navigation mieux adaptée aux […]
