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.


UW-Fond du Lac runs a printer management software, PaperCut, to regulate each student’s printing account. Each student printing account will be issued a $10.00 initial fee starting balance per academic term. Accounts will be reset at the start of a new Fall academic term. Balances which remain per semester will be added to the new semester’s initial fee. Students will be charged $.10 for black & white prints and $.25 for color prints. The print driver’s will default to duplex. An individual can change their preference to print on a single sided page. Students may add dollars to their account for additional pages at the CASE desk. Purchases are non-refundable. 

Reserve Collection

This collection, located behind the circulation desk, includes books, articles, CDs, DVDs, and other items for short-term reading or viewing as assigned by faculty. Since many students need to access a limited number of copies or materials, the loan periods are much shorter than normal.  The loan periods range from 2 hours to 3 days and the fines are heavy.
