Murphy Library has a security system that is set off
when someone exits without checking out library
materials. When the security system is set off,
individuals are stopped and asked to open any bags for
inspection. Please note: Public Library materials,
rented videos and some materials from textbook rental
will set off the security system. Persons who fail to
check out materials or who mutilate library materials are reported to
the Student Life Office for disciplinary action. The
minimum charge for mutilated items is $50.00.
Mutilation or theft of library materials can result in penalties of fine, probation, or expulsion:UWS 17.09 (7) of the Wisconsin Administrative Code

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.
