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, instruction by a reference librarian is available for classes and individuals upon request. When setting up a class visit, it’s best to contact us early, whic will help to guarantee your first choice of date and time. Individual meetings can be arranged on shorter notice.
To see what new resources and services the library has to offer, check out the Library's blog. A complete list of our online resources may be found by selecting "Articles & Databases" from the "Find" menu. 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 instruction in Library resources through a class session(s) scheduled by their instructor. Introductory sessions usually occur in English 102, and more advanced, detailed sessions occur in higher level research-based courses and those 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 from other institutions are often referred to the librarian liaison for their department, since they are not familiar with UW-W resources. However, students do not need to be referred to a librarian; they may contact us directly.
