      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 the library catalog, online databases, electronic journals, online forms and much more.

      • PantherCat is the UWM Libraries' online catalog, which includes all of the UWM Libraries' collections. Find out if we own a book, journal, DVD, CD, government publication or other material by searching PantherCat.
      • Databases: Much of your research may involve using databases (such as PsycInfo or Web of Science) to find research articles. We have access to over 200 research databases covering every discipline. Our Resources A-Z page is an alphabetical listing of all the databases the library has access to. See Resources by Subject for a list of databases according to discipline.
      • Assignment Calculator: a tool designed to help you structure and manage your projects by breaking the research process into discrete steps with deadlines.
      • Electronic Journals List: This is an alphabetical listing of all of the journals that UWM Libraries has electronic access to. Next to the journal title are the dates that the journal is available. In many cases, access to electronic journals is available via full-text article indexes. Click on the FindIt! button under the name of the journal to see which database indexes the journal. For the most complete and up-to-date records, use Citation Linker.
      • Citation Linker: Use Citation Linker to check a citation for a known article against the online and print collection of the UWM Libraries. For example, if you have a citation for an article from another source, such as a reading list for class or a bibliography, use Citation Linker to determine whether the article is available online or in print format. You can also use Citation Linker to check if a particular journal is available through the UWM Libraries, in either online or print format.
      • Reserve and E-Reserve: Many instructors place materials for courses on reserve. Scroll to the instructor's name and click search. Records for electronic reserve materials are at the top of the list.
