Information for Transfer Students : Welcome!

Welcome to UW-Madison! We hope this guide will provide you with information about our Libraries. Some services, resources, etc. may be different from your previous academic institution.


Welcome to UW-Madison! 

Some services and resources at UW-Madison may be different from what was available at your previous academic institution.

As someone who has recently transferred here, some of your professors won't recognize you as new to campus.  When they give you that first research assignment they will likely expect that you already know how to use our library resources.  
We hope this guide will provide you with information about the libraries at UW-Madison and get you caught-up to speed quickly.
