The Information Literacy Learning Center is used for library-related activities, services, and functions. Library staff coordinate and schedule the use of the room. To schedule an information literacy session or obtain more information, please contact Susanna Boylston, Assistant Director for Information Literacy and Content Selection.

Secondary function of the library's Information Literacy Learning Center
Computers in the Information Literacy Learning Center are available for use by Davidson students during the academic year when there are not information literacy, library instruction, library orientation, or library workshop sessions scheduled. Please note that some computers in the room are reserved for group research consultations during these times; hours will be posted at the door. In addition, some hours are designated "Quiet Study" hours.
Please check the sign at the door of the Information Literacy Learning Center for the current day's opening, closing, group consultation, and "Quiet Study" times; we will post the hours each day.
The room will be closed half an hour before a scheduled information literacy session, library orientation session, or library workshop; the room will reopen after the session has ended.
Students using the Information Literacy Learning Center should remove their belongings before the room closes. Items left in the room overnight will be placed in lost and found the following morning.
