Services for Students

Research Assistance

Librarians are here to help you 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 reference desk during regular library hours, or schedule an appointment with a librarian.


Students at UW-Barron County 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.


Students wishing to make photocopies should ask a member of library staff to enter the copy machine code. All student copies are .10 each and must be paid for in cash at the circulation desk. Color copies/prints may be made at the circulation desk and are $1 per page.

Reserve Collection

This collection, located behind the circulation desk, includes textbooks, books, articles, and/or audio and video tapes for short-term reading or viewing as assigned by faculty. Since many students need to access a limited number of copies or materials, fines for overdue items are heavy: 2-hr. loans: $1 per hour, per item.
