Reference Department

Whether you need a quick answer to a question, help in searching the online catalog, assistance in researching a paper, or extended instruction in using a particular research tool, our Reference Librarians are here to guide and teach you.

Reference Collection

The Reference Collection contains over 20,000 print and electronic sources. The print collection includes encyclopedias, atlases, dictionaries, and many other sources. Library electronic indexes and databases are accessible from the Reference Room as well as through the campus network. These include the catalog of the UWSP Library and UW System, as well as periodical indexes and some full text databases in many subject areas.

Foundation Collection

The Foundation Collection at the UW-Stevens Point Library is an affiliate of the primary Foundation Center in New York City. The Collection provides information about foundations, corporate giving, fund-raising, nonprofit organizations, and proposal writing. The Foundation Collection does not circulate and is available for anyone who wishes to make use of it during the hours the library is open. Appointments may be made for assistance, contact Nerissa Nelson (715-346-4204).
