McWhorter Information Literacy Classroom

The primary purpose of the McWhorter Information Literacy Classroom (MILC) is to provide students and faculty with interactive library instruction.

  • These information literacy sessions take priority over all other uses of the classroom.
  • The classroom may be scheduled by teaching faculty for single session, hands-on instruction when it is not being used for library instruction. No semester-long classes will be scheduled in the classroom. All non-library instruction requests will be considered no more than one week in advance. To schedule the MILC, contact Judy Williams ( email or 460-6610).
  • An instructor must be present at all times.
  • Students may use the computers in the classroom for research purposes when there is nothing scheduled in the room. The weekly schedule will be posted on Monday morning. A valid Belmont ID is required to enter.

The MILC is equipped with:

  • InterWrite Board (Smartboard) - this is not a whiteboard
  • Data Projector
  • Teacher station with computer
  • DVD/VHS player
  • Speakers
  • 30 user stations equipped with Microsoft Office, internet access, and selected software

FYS Reader

All faculty are encouraged to read the FYS Reader and make connections to their courses from the content.  If you have questions about the FYS Reader, please contact the General Education office.
