Ask Questions

If you're not sure where to begin, or whom to ask - stop by, email, or call the Reference Desk for help! Reference staff is available to answer questions about the Library collection and services, and to give help to researchers. Any questions are appropriate, from finding call numbers to identifying articles on a specialized topic, from using microfilm to tracking down web sites. Personal assistance is available at the Library, by appointment or drop-in most open hours. Call 608-363-2544, e-mail, or add us to your Beloit chat list by searching for 'Ask A Librarian'.

Browse, search, find

The Library website is a carefully selected and arranged collection of resources designed to provide a solid start to any research project. You'll find quick search options and links to our catalog, Belcat, and the Database button providing links to a multitude of journal article index and full-text databases conveniently grouped according to subject coverage.
