Research and Collection Resources

The UWM Libraries homepage is the starting point for researchers who wish to access the libraries' resources. From here you can utilize online databases, electronic journals, online forms and much more.

  • Search@UW  searches articles, books (including UW System books), media and digital collections. Find out if we own a book, journal, DVD, CD, or government publication by using Search@UW.
  • Databases: Much of your research may involve using databases (such as PubMed, PsycINFO or Web of Science) to find research articles. We have access to over 300 research databases covering every discipline. Our Databases A-Z page is an alphabetical listing of all the databases the library has access to. See Databases & Guides by Subject for a list of databases according to discipline.
