Busy Times At The UWM Libraries

Busy Times At The UWM Libraries

February is our busiest library instruction month. Your daughter or son may have an opportunity to visit the UWM Libraries with their class as part of our library instruction program.

Librarians and graduate interns teach first-year students a variety of research concepts and skills to first-year students in a variety of classes, including English 102, First Year Transition Courses, Introduction to the Profession courses and more.

Last February, 2,853 students in 128 classes received library instruction. These classes could be opportunities for guided research experiences to help students complete a research assignment or a library tour to view our awesome collections, beautiful study spaces, and helpful staff.  If your student is feeling overwhelmed we have an online tutorial to walk them through each stage of the research process from choosing a topic to creating a bibliography – http://guides.library.uwm.edu/infolit

The UWM Libraries also offers walk-up research help seven days a week during the spring and fall semesters. Our Research Help Desk is on the first floor west wing of the library in the Daniel M. Soref Learning Commons and is staffed by graduate interns and librarians. We are always eager to help students with big or small questions at any point during the semester. If you feel your son or daughter needs a little extra assistance with a project encourage them to stop by the library.
