Training plan

In each academic year the training offer is specified in a Training Plan. During the current academic year we already have a first version, TRAINING PLAN COURSE 2023/24 (Version 1ª-January 2024).

In order to meet this objective, the Library's User Training Service offers different training sessions.

1. Informative/training sessions for incoming undergraduate and master's degree students.

2. Training in Information Competences with credit recognition, mainly aimed at undergraduate students.

2.1. Online sessions (MOODLE PLATFORM).

Students of the University of Valladolid can select among the University Activities in the Undergraduate Studies the INFORMATION SKILLS TRAINING.

The Governing Council of the University approves for the academic year 2022-2023 all the Information Skills Training Activities organized by the Library. Therefore, all those included in the Training Plan for the academic year 2022-23 proposed by the Library will have credit recognition.
