The mission of the Mark O. Hatfield Library is to support student and faculty study, research and teaching. The library is a university library; the primary function of the Library Classroom in the Mark O. Hatfield Library is to provide a place for librarians to conduct course-related library instruction and library meetings. Working in conjunction with faculty members, librarians provide guidance in the use of research tools and strategies, demonstrate the use of electronic resources, and offer help with the research process.
The classroom can be used for a variety of other instructional purposes as well. The room can be used by Willamette faculty who want to meet with their classes on an occasional basis in the library. Willamette Integrated Technology Services staff may use the room for computer training. This room is also available to Willamette faculty or staff for showing video recordings to their classes and available for students to check out in the evenings after 6 p.m.
Other requests to use the Library Classroom should be sent to the Associate University Librarian for Collections, Teaching, and Research, Joni Roberts. To have the room unlocked, ask at the Circulation Desk.
