Reference Services

Reference librarians can help you find the information you need.

We can:

  • Locate journal articles and books
  • Decipher incomplete or incorrect citations
  • Recommend databases and other resources
  • Suggest strategies for literature searches
  • Set up a literature alert on your research topic
  • Explain library services
  • And more!

Reference librarians are available Monday-Friday until 5:00 pm.

Come see us in person, call us at (608) 262-5935, email us, or use the Ask link in the upper right of the screen to get help from a librarian via online chat.
