Library Instruction: Home


Knowledge of the UW-Whitewater libraries' resources and how to use them efficiently and effectively is important for UWW faculty, staff, and students. We want to help you and your students do the best research possible. To that end, reference and instruction librarians are available weekdays, as well as most weeknights and weekends when classes are in session. Check for regular librarian hours at the Andersen Library and Lenox Library. Other times may be available upon request. 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 button on the Library homepage. To browse online resources by subject, choose an option from the Subject menu at the top of the A-Z Databases page.
