Services for Students

How we create student success

See below for our basic student services offered in the library.

Research Assistance

Librarians are here to help you with all aspects of the research process including:

  • Figuring out research topic ideas;
  • Finding background information on your topic;
  • Identifying high quality, scholarly resources for your topic or project;
  • Managing citations and creating bibliographies.

Stop by the reference desk during regular library hours, or schedule an appointment with a librarian.


Students at UW-Barron County use their UCard balance to manage their student printing accounts. Each student will be issued a $10.00 initial balance on their UCard when they receive it. This initial balance is applied one time only; students may add additional funds to the UCard accounts to pay for printing here at Ucard Accounts. UCard balances do not expire until one year of inactivity after the student is no longer matriculated at the university. Please read the UCard FAQ for more information here: UCard FAQs.

Students will be charged $.05 for black & white prints and $.25 for color prints. The printer will default to double sided copies, but individuals may change their preference to print on a single sided page. Purchases are non-refundable.
