Surround yourself with knowledge. Surround yourself with UW-La Crosse.
As outlined in the Murphy Library Mission & Values statement, the library staff is committed to supporting research, teaching and public service. We expect all users to conduct themselves in a manner that does not disturb other patrons, disrupt the operation of the library or cause damage to the library, its
equipment and materials. Users and visitors are also expected to
abide by all relevant University policies as well as local,
state and federal laws.
Unacceptable behaviors include, but are not limited to, the following:
University of Wisconsin-La Crosse students, faculty and staff
have priority over all other library users for access to library
collections, services, and facilities.
Library personnel have the authority to enforce this policy.
Anyone who violates this policy will be so informed and asked to
stop the offensive conduct and/or leave the facility. Library
users shall show identification when requested to do so by
Library personnel when they identify themselves and state the
reason for their request. Library staff reserves the right to
inspect bags, etc. if the security system is set off.
Patrons may be asked to leave the library, lose their library
privileges and /or be subject to disciplinary or legal action as
appropriate. Campus police will be called when necessary. The
Library will pursue any misconduct through campus disciplinary
channels as stated in UW System Administrative Code
Chapter 17. Where appropriate, infractions may be referred
to local, state or federal law enforcement officials.

As a pilot project, Room 12, in the library basement, has been converted to a silent
study room. Many students ask for an environment even quieter than the library’s designated quiet
areas, so this room is intended to answer that need.
For more information on this space please see our blog. We look forward to learning how this room fulfills its intended
purpose. Please let us know how it is working for you. Send feedback on this space to
To provide more computers during the busy period at the end of the semester, the library is opening
an additional room with computers. Room 30, a computer classroom in the basement of the library,
will open during regular library hours starting December 1, 2013. Students will be able to use the desktop
computers in that room individually or in groups.
