New Ideas

Knowledge of Andersen Library resources and how to use them efficiently and effectively is important for UW-Whitewater faculty and students. To help fill this need, training by a reference and instruction librarian is available for classes and individuals upon request. When setting up a class visit, it’s best to contact us early, which will help to guarantee your first choice of date and time. Individual meetings can be arranged on shorter notice.

New library resources and services are featured in the Andersen Library Blog, as well as in our monthly newsletter. A complete list of online Library resources may be found by selecting Articles & Databases from the Find menu on any Library webpage. To browse online resources by subject, choose an option under Databases by Subject on the right side of that page.



Library instruction at the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater is available to faculty, staff and students. Typically, students receive training in Library resources and services through class sessions scheduled by their instructor(s). Introductory sessions usually occur in English 102, and more advanced, detailed sessions occur in higher level research-based courses orthose with a research component. However, no matter the course level, instruction is tailored to fit the specific needs of you and your students. Reference librarians generally meet with classes in our Library Instruction Lab, but may come to your classroom or departmental computer lab if you prefer. Please let us know your needs and concerns, and we will do our best to address them.

Faculty, staff, and students may also schedule one-on-one or small group sessions for customized in-depth assistance. Transfer and graduate students coming from other institutions are often referred to the librarian liaison for their department, since those students are not familiar with UW-W resources. However, students do not need to be referred to a librarian; they may contact us directly.
