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.


Students at UW-Fond du Lac use their UCard balance to manage their student printing accounts. Each student will be issued a $10.00 initial balance on their UCard when they receive it. This initial balance is applied one time only; students may add additional funds to the UCard accounts to pay for printing here: UCard balances do not expire until one year of inactivity after the student is no longer matriculated at the university. Please read the UCard FAQ for more information here:

Students will be charged $.10 for black & white prints and $.25 for color prints. The printer will default to double sided copies, but individuals may change their preference to print on a single sided page. 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.
