JAPAN299: Ad Hoc: Extensive Reading in Japanese (Yuko Wert / Spring 2017): Getting Started

Finding books and articles in Japanese

Class Cart for JAPAN299 class during the Spring 2017 semester

Most of the books that you'll be reading for this Spring 2017 JAPAN299 course will be kept on a 'Class Cart' for easy access. This cart will be wheeled into your classroom (Room E281 on the 2nd floor, east wing of the Library) during class time. You may check out these books during class time as well as during regular Library hours. When this class is not in session, the 'Class Cart' will be kept behind the 2nd floor, east wing circulation desk. You may ask any staff member to wheel the cart out for you.

Familiarize Yourself with the UWM Libraries


The UWM Libraries is contained within the Golda Meir Library building, directly north of the Student Union. The Daniel M. Soref Learning Commons on the first floor of the west wing of the library is open 24 hours a day, Sunday through Thursday (reduced hours Friday/Saturday) during Fall and Spring semesters.

Identifying Fake News Sources

A fake news story about Aaron Rodgers was one of many that prompted Melissa Zimdars, currently a Professor of Communication & Media at Merrimack College and formerly an undergraduate and graduate student at UWM, to put together an ongoing Google doc: "List of False, Misleading, Clickbait-y, and/or Satirical 'News' Sources." This document has been widely circulated via many credible online news resources, such as: The Washington Post, NPR, The Boston Globe and Inside Higher Ed.
