    Policy and Procedures for Scheduling Library Resource Center Display Cases 

    The three display cases located on the main floor of the LRC are available for scheduled use. When scheduling conflicts occur, priority will be given to requests on the following basis: 
        First priority: Murphy Library oriented materials, topics, and/or events in which the LRC is a participant. 
        Second priority: University departments and units 
        Third priority: Recognized student organizations Content of the display should be of general interest to the university community. 
    When a question of appropriateness is raised, the topic will be referred to the Library Advisory Council for recommended action. The library reserves the right to deny requests. 
    Exhibitors are responsible for placing the materials in the cases and removing them at the designated time. The library is not responsible for the security of materials. 
    The display case request form should be returned to the office at least one month prior to the display date.

  • Resource Cancellations Survey

     Resource Cancellations Survey
    Extended to April 24

    Like other units and departments on campus, Murphy Library has been asked to make budget cuts to meet reduced state support for the UW System. Some of the cuts will come from the library's budget for collections. That budget pays for databases, electronic resources, periodicals, books, multimedia, and similar. 

    Library users are asked to help the library in its selection of titles for cancellation. Please share your thoughts regarding specific resources that have been identified for likely cancellation by completing the one-page Resource Cancellations Survey.

    Read more about the rationale and selection criteria in the blog post: Proposed Resource Cancellations.

    The survey will be open until April 24.
