A patron being helped at the Reference Desk

The second floor Reference Desk is an assistance area for Memorial Library, the principal research library on campus for the social sciences and humanities. Its primary clientele are the students, faculty, and staff of UW-Madison, but it also serves researchers beyond the campus.

How to Get Reference Help


The Reference Room is open the same hours as Memorial Library.  Effective January 2018, the second floor Reference Desk is staffed Monday–Friday: 10:00 am–2:00 pm. Outside of those times, please come to the first floor Circulation & Information Desk for assistance.
