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.


UW-Barron County 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. 


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.
