University Libraries' faculty provide library instruction to classes and groups in collaboration with faculty in other academic departments, to promote information literacy throughout the university curriculum. We encourage teaching faculty to consider incorporating an information literacy component into their courses.
Faculty planning library instruction should consider the following guidelines:
The primary use of the Instruction Center is for library instruction and our policies are designed to ensure the rooms are available for that use. U of M faculty and staff may schedule non-library-instruction use of either of the rooms in accordance with the guidelines below. Students may not schedule the rooms and are not allowed to use the rooms without a faculty or staff member present.
Please review the space information for both rooms - 225 and 226 - to determine which will suit your purposes. NOTE: Room 226 laptops are available only for sessions involving library personnel. In other cases, participants may bring their own laptops or check out laptops from the library.
Use of a room is restricted to those who comply with the following guidelines:
If you wish to reserve ML 225 or ML 226 for non-library-instruction purposes, please use the In-Person Library Instruction Request form, also available through the Request Library Instruction link on the Libraries Instruction page.
Guided Instruction Visits provide an orientation of the spaces, services, and resources of McWherter Library. Visits are associated with and tailored to visitors' current assignment(s), areas of study, and/or research interests in order to increase relevancy and retention. Requesters will be asked to provide details regarding this information.
To request a Guided Instruction Visit, contact Barbara Thomas at email@example.com. If you have not heard back within two business days, call the RAD (Research Assistance Desk) at 901.678.2208.
Tours of Libraries spaces which are unrelated to instruction/research are not available through the Libraries. If you are interested in a tour of the University of Memphis, please visit the UofM Admissions' Visit Campus page.
