  • Graphing calculators
  • Headphones
  • Laptops
  • Tablets
  • Digital voice recorders
  • Digital 35mm and video cameras

Group Study Rooms

The library has three group study spaces dedicated to collaborative group work. Our "smart" study room has a wireless projector that accomodates up to 4 laptops so students can share their work on a 8' x 15 ' white board wall.  Reserve a group study room at the Welcome Desk.


Students wishing to make photocopies may use the student photocopier/printer located in Lab 259. All student copies are $.10 each and will be deducted from the student’s print account.


UW-WC students start each semester with $10 in their print account.  B&W prints are $.10 each, color prints are $.25 each.  A student may add additional funds to a print account at the Library circulation desk or IT Help Desk. However unused print money will not be refunded or transfer over to the next semester.

Research Assistance

Librarians are here to help with all aspects of the research process including:

  • Figuring out research topic ideas
  • Finding background information on your topic
  • Identifying high quality, scholarly resources for your topic or project
  • Managing citations and creating bibliographies

Stop by the library during regular library hours, or schedule an appointment with a librarian.

Reserve Collection

This collection, located behind the circulation desk, includes books, articles, and/or audio and video tapes for short-term reading or viewing as assigned by faculty. Since many students need to access a limited number of copies or materials, fines for overdue items are heavy: 2-hr. loans: $.50 per hour overdue, per item.
