  • Individual research consultation

    Use this form to request an appointment for a research consultation with a reference librarian.

    • Murphy Library Research Consultations provide an opportunity for individuals to meet with a reference librarian for in-depth and personal assistance with a specific advanced information research project.

    • Research consultations are offered as a supplement to regular reference services.  Please consider whether we might be able to help you effectively from the reference desk (walk-up, phone, email, chat, or text; no appointment necessary) before you request a research consultation.

    • You should have a clearly defined information research goal already established.

    • You should be able to discuss what you have already found and where you have already looked.

    • When suggesting days and times that would work for your schedule, allow for a session of up to an hour.  Typical consultation sessions may last 15 - 30 minutes.

    • Once you complete the form, you will hear back from a reference librarian via email.  You will then work with that librarian to finalize the day, time and place for your meeting.

    • Sessions will usually be held in the library, but arrangements can also be made to meet in faculty/staff offices.

    • This service is offered to UW-L students, faculty, and staff, as well as to patrons accessing Federal or Wisconsin government depository materials.

  • 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.
