Message about library instruction and COVID-19

YOU MUST SHOW A WIU ID TO ENTER ANY WIU LIBRARY (MACOMB AND QUAD CITIES).

All library classrooms follow current university guidelines and recommendations for COVID-19 in physical spaces, including no back-to-back classes, and decreased number of seats in the classrooms, including removal of middle row seats to increase social distancing.  

In line with social distancing recommendations, seating is reduced in the classrooms with 19 available seats in LCC2 and 13 seats in LCC3.

For library resources on COVID-19 see the library guide at

Request Instruction

Please submit requests for course-related instruction at least two weeks in advance in order that librarians have ample time to schedule and prepare to teach. All requests for instruction are considered on first come first serve basis. Consult the classroom calendars to make sure a room is available for your class. Due to space limitations and demand we can no longer schedule classrooms or classes without a librarian the first two weeks each semester. Allow 2 working days for your instruction session to appear on the classroom calendar. Do not consider an instruction session scheduled until you receive email confirmation of your request. Instruction requests with less than two week notice may not be filled.

Make sure the room you are requesting has the software you wish to use. If not, please contact Library Computer Services at 298-2758, at least two weeks before your session to have it added. See the classroom software list. For more information, see the Policy for Library Instruction and the Policy for Library Classrooms or contact the Instruction Services Coordinator, Sean Cordes at cs-cordes@wiu.edu.

Note: Please specify if you would like to hold the session in the library or as a Zoom meeting online.
