Students who graduate from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse need information literacy skills to enable them to become “life-long learners who will be engaged as knowledgeable and responsible citizens in a diverse and ever-changing world.” (General Education Mission Statement.)
What We Offer
More than 250 information literacy instruction sessions are offered each year reaching more than 5,000 UWL students annually. Class presentations through the cooperative efforts of the instructor and the librarian are designed to meet the needs of each instructor’s course requirements. Librarians can introduce students to library resources, information technology, research strategies and information literacy skills such as critical thinking.
Course Related Instruction
Faculty and instructional staff at UW-La Crosse may arrange course-related instruction on research strategies and information sources, related to a particular discipline or class project. Sessions must be scheduled at least one week in advance. The classroom instructor must be present. Most library instruction sessions will be held in Room 30. To arrange for course related library instruction:
Walk-in tours of the Murphy Library Resource Center are offered during the first week of classes in the fall term. To arrange for a tour at another time, please email our instruction staff at email@example.com
Information Literacy Standards:
Many classes are held in Room 30, which has been remodeled to accommodate both lecture/demo style instruction as well as small group, hands-on instruction.
Room 30 is UW-L's premier computer classroom designed specifically for small-group work with shared computers.
Come see how well this concept works for library instruction!
Seminar Room 120 is available to instructors who wish to use it on an infrequent basis, to guide classes as they conduct research in the library. It is also used for library meetings. To reserve it, sign up on the reservation calendar posted in the room.Reserve Other Classrooms in the LRC
