Andersen Library’s MLK weekend hours, UWW MLK event

Andersen Library will be closed Sat. Jan. 17-Mon. Jan. 19 (Winterim ends on Jan. 16th, and it’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday the 19th). Spring Semester hours will start on Tues., Jan. 20th, at 7:30 a.m.

Please plan ahead! Remember that even when the physical Library is closed, you can:

  • Search the article databases (login when prompted with your campus Net-ID, same as for your campus email or D2L),
  • Search for Andersen Library’s holdings of Books, Media and more (UW Whitewater) and use links to online titles, including ereserves for classes,
  • Renew checked-out books, DVDs, etc. through your Account,
  • Consult online guides for help, including citation guides for APA, MLA, and Turabian format, and course assignment guides, and
  • Ask a librarian for help using email or chat (UWW librarians respond to the emails when the Library is open, but chat is covered 24/7 by non-UWW staff).

You can learn more about the MLK Day holiday online from the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change. In addition, UWW’s Martin Luther King Commemorative Event will take place on Wed., Jan. 28, at 3:30 p.m. in the UC Hamilton Room: Deuel Ross, staff fellow for the NAACP Legal Defense & Education Fund, will talk about the 1965 Voting Rights Act, enacted 50 years ago.
