Borrowing Materials from Other Libraries
If Andersen Library does not have the item you need, or if it has already been checked out by someone else, the Library can usually borrow the item for you from another library. Which lending service to use depends upon the resource you wish to borrow. For assistance, please contact a reference librarian.
Borrow from Other UW Libraries: Universal Borrowing
Use to borrow physical materials such as books, videos, and government documents--if not available at Andersen Library--from other UW System libraries. Universal Borrowing is a free service; items ordered generally arrive within 2-5 weekdays. Read more.
Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad)
Use to request articles from newspapers, journals, and magazines not available at Andersen Library. Also use to borrow books and other materials not available in a UW System library. Minimum charge per filled request is $1.00. Approximate turnaround time is 1-4 weekdays for articles; 5-7 weekdays for most other items. For more information and instructions, go to the Interlibrary Loan service page.
Check the online catalog of the public library nearest you. Although you may borrow public library books via ILL, you may find it quicker to go directly to your local library if they have the title you need.
CESA #2 Resources & Library
If you are currently a K12 school staff member, you may have access to materials from their collection. UWW faculty and students may view materials at the Resource Center in person, but should contact the CESA librarian to make an appointment. If you are not a teacher within the CESA 2 area, view this map to identify your local CESA.
Graduate and distance education students may use Document Delivery to have journal articles owned by UW-Whitewater in print or microform sent to them by UW-W email. Request a Document Delivery article using the request form in ILLiad. Turnaround time is generally 1-2 weekdays. There is a $1.00 fee per filled request. Charges will be added to your library account once your request is processed. Click to log on.
