The Instructional Lab
The Instructional Laboratory (Lab) is located on the ground floor of the Library building across from the Late Night Study area. The Lab supports the Library’s Bibliographic Instruction Program, IT Services’ training sessions, and academic workshops.
The Instructional Lab is intended for hands-on instruction in library, information technology (IT) resources, and academic workshops. Wardman Library’s Office Manger is responsible for scheduling the Lab and maintaining an up-to-date calendar of scheduled events. Librarians and IT staff may schedule the Lab for user instruction or training through the Office Manager. Faculty and staff who want to schedule a one-time use of the Lab for classes should also contact the Office Manager. Although scheduling will be on a first-come-first-serve basis, preference will be given to student instruction over staff and faculty training. Scheduling conflicts should be referred to the Office Manager.
College Writing Seminar (INTD 100):
During the first four weeks of each semester, priority scheduling will go to all professors who instruct College Writing Seminar (INTD 100) courses. These courses should be scheduled through Information Literacy Librarian Joanna Perez (email@example.com). All other courses and non-priority reservations are considered tentative during this time.
The Instructional Lab has been designed to provide a setting in which students, faculty, and staff can receive effective instruction in discovering and using a variety of traditional and electronic library and information resource.
Priority use of the Lab will be for:
- Bibliographic instruction sessions scheduled in conjunction with librarians and professors to teach effective library research skills for their individual courses; librarians will work with faculty members to schedule and develop learning content for a given session.
- Classes and training sessions scheduled by the Library and IT Services to teach search strategies and information systems.
- College faculty/staff-designed programming/workshops.
