Library Instruction: Home


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

You can keep up with new library resources and services by reading the Andersen Library Blog, as well as in our monthly newsletter. A complete list of online Library resources may be found by selecting the Articles/Databases tab in the box on the Library homepage. To browse online resources by subject, choose a subject option using the menu at the top of that page.
