Welcome to the UWM Libraries!

Welcome to the UWM Libraries, we are here to help you! 

This guide will assist McNair Scholars in searching and finding appropriate scholarly sources for research, and additional library resources and services of importance for incoming Graduate students including the following:

How to search and find resources- A brief overview of  how to develop a search strategy. Walkthroughs for signing in to your UW system account and making requests as well and a quick look at where to find databases of articles and other research information.

Research and Support Services- Learn about the various services the library provides, like 24/7 chat help and research consultations.
