Our trainings for schools

Please note that currently our introduction sessions take place via Zoom.


The Bavarian State Ministry for Education and Cultural Affairs actively attributes a key role to libraries as a place of learning and work as part of the W-seminar series. We therefore offer introductory sessions on how to use an academic library, which usually last around 90 minutes. If you would like to register or have any questions, please contact us at schulung@hs-kempten.de.

We can tailor the event

  • to match the seminar’s topic,
  • as well as explaining how the library is set up and used, how to search online catalogues, about inter-library loans and the relevant databases.
  • The focus is on practical advice and encouraging school pupils to have a go themselves,
  • and we can schedule the session to fit in with class times.

Staff are also more than happy to offer introduction sessions and guided tours to anyone local who’s interested in the university library (school classes, seminar groups, etc.) Simply send us an email to enquire at schulung@hs-kempten.de.

Get to know the library

Take a look here at the “Get to know the library” quiz on our user guidelines. The quiz is designed to help school pupils familiarise themselves with the library from home.
You will need to download the Actionbound app to take the quiz. Further information about the app can be found at Actionbound.


“Bibliotheken – Partner der Schulen” distinction

We are delighted to have now earned the award “Bibliotheken – Partner der Schulen” (Libraries - partnering schools) for the third time in a row.
This special hallmark distinguishes libraries who make an exemplary effort to collaborate closely with schools.
The scheme was created and is run by the Landesfachstelle für das öffentliche Bibliothekswesen der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek and the Staatsinstitut für Schulqualität und Bildungsforschung.
