This is very useful for long-term research projects.

By-Request Workshops and Tours
The UWM Libraries offers a variety of instructional services “by request”—you can request a workshop for yourself or for a group. Workshops are normally scheduled in the Golda Meir Library building, but may be delivered on-site for your group meeting at any of our UWM campuses. Prefer a workshop on a library research resource or service that isn’t currently listed? Please ask! We will work with you to customize a session to meet the needs of UWM’s graduate student community.
