Academic Resources

Advising

All UW-Richland students have an academic advisor, a valuable resource, ally and mentor. Working effectively with your advisor will enhance your collegiate experience. Your advisor can do more than help you select classes; don’t overlook this important resource. Check out advisor resources.

Library

The Miller Memorial Library has more than 35,000 books, LPs, CDs, audio and video cassette tapes, and DVDs, plus more than 100 periodical subscriptions. The library’s catalog and periodical indexing is web-based, and includes access to library catalogs throughout the UW System. The circulation system provides easy check-out to students through the use of their identification cards. Interlibrary loan from other UW Colleges and other UW System libraries vastly expands students’ research possibilities.

Online Writing Lab

The Online Writing Lab (OWL) is a writing resource for UW Colleges students. Students can email drafts of their writing to receive feedback from the OWL director or student writing tutors.

The OWL website offers tips for essay writers, contains information about common grammar/ punctuation errors, and presents Modern Language Association (MLA) and American Psychological Association (APA) documentation guidelines.
