Room 509 (Library Instruction Classroom)
FUNK LIBRARY 509
The Library Instruction Lab located on the 5th floor of the Funk Library is a library instruction teaching space that has 36 computers, a ceiling projector, audio, dry erase boards (2 stationary and 1 movable easel). All computers are connected by Ethernet to the internet.
Primary use of Space
- The first priority of this lab is for librarian-led library instruction. This lab is not available for non-library led classes.
- Priority is given to classes that need to make use of computer based resources.

Anyone who is conducting instruction in Room 509 has the option to use the clicker kit to support participant response. The clickers response system is fully integrated with PowerPoint and installed on the instructor workstation. Check out the clicker kit at the Funk Library Circulation Desk with your I-card.
Each kit contains:
- a USB response card receiver that plugs into an instructor workstation and receives radio frequency signals from the individual clickers;
- a static shield bag for storing the response card receiver;
- a battery-operated "response card anywhere" device that allows the instructor to receive clicker signals without having a computer in the mix;
When you borrow a clicker kit, please be very careful to return all the component parts in the kit.
Any questions regarding the Clickers contact Susan Avery in the Undergraduate Library for assistance.
