Welcome to your Murphy Library Research & Information Seeking Tools guide. Because all of our courses have moved online for the next several weeks, the librarians at Murphy have put together this guide for you to use in lieu of in-person library instruction.
You can use this guide to get started searching the library databases for articles, the library catalog for books, for help with citing and much more.
On the homepage of this guide, you'll find general information about the library as well as contact information for the librarians and the reference desk. If you are in need of research assistance, please contact the reference desk or your subject librarian for help.
Many library resources, such as the catalog and the Journals & Newspapers Locator, are available anywhere in the world without having to log in.
Most of the information databases and periodicals that the library subscribes to are also available off campus, but only to users affiliated with UWL.
