Here is a quick way to search for electronic books and government documents in the UW-Whitewater Library Catalog.
1. Begin your search on the library home page. Be sure that the search option for Books, Media & more (UW Whitewater) is selected. (You may also click the image below to get started.)
2. Under the Availability menu, you may limit to Available at Whitewater (physical items in the library), or Whitewater Online Resources (e-books).
3. The location of an item is indicated below the title information. Click the location line for further access information.
4. If you see "Use Get It to Request", the item may not be currently available at UW-W. Follow the link to make a UW Request or to place a hold.
If the UW-Whitewater Libraries do 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.
UW Request: Borrow from Other UW Libraries
Borrow physical materials such as books, videos, and government documents--if not available at Andersen Library--from other UW System libraries. Items ordered generally arrive within 2-5 weekdays.
Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad): Borrow from Libraries Outside the UW System
Request articles from newspapers, journals, and magazines, as well as books and other materials not available in a UW System library. Approximate turnaround time is 1-4 weekdays for articles; 5-7 weekdays for physical items.
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. Note your distance education and/or graduate status information in the Comments space on the form. Turnaround time is generally 1-2 weekdays.
