    Borrowing materials

    The circulating collection consists of books, government documents, maps, current periodicals and microforms. There is no limit to the number of items that you may check out from the general collection. Reference books, bound periodicals, and material housed in the Area Research Center do not circulate.

    Your barcoded UW-La Crosse ID card must be presented when checking out library materials. IDs are not transferable.

    Borrowers are responsible for all materials checked out and are expected to return or renew borrowed items by the due date. A borrower's responsibility does not end until materials have been returned to and discharged by the library.

    Borrowers are expected to respond to all library notices and are responsible for notifying the library of address changes or corrections.

    Borrowing current periodicals

    Faculty are invited to check out current (unbound) periodicals for one week (7 days). This is a pilot program during which we plan to assess this service with the hope of expanding it over the coming months. If you have suggestions or comments regarding this new service, please contact Heather Jett, Access Services Librarian (hjett@uwlax.edu).

    To check out a current periodical, simply bring the item to the Reserves desk with your UW-L ID. A student assistant will place your item into a barcoded, plastic cover for checkout and will make a note of the item’s barcode, title, volume, and issue number. We appreciate your patience as we perfect this process.

  • New: Journal Citation Reports

    Murphy Library has subscribed to Journal Citation Reports (JCR), a tool that evaluates the influence and impact of scholarly journals in the sciences and social sciences.

    JCR ranks journals according to how often they are cited, how quickly articles are cited, and other criteria. Researchers often use JCR to identify the core journals in their discipline, to learn about those journals, and to try to determine the influence of those journals.

    Connect directly to Journal Citation Reports here, or find it in the library's list of  databases by title and on the library's Resources for Faculty and Staff  web page.
