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.
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.
Follow the prompts on the form and tap "Submit Request"
You will receive an email when the requested item is ready for pickup or online access.
For more details about borrowing items from Andersen Library, visit the Circulation Services page and select Borrow from Us.
Are you taking classes online? You can still use library services and access library resources! Students who are enrolled in UW-Whitewater online degree programs are considered Distance Education (DE) students. Graduate students and faculty are also eligible for these services. These students are eligible for the same services as on-campus students, as well as others listed below.
Request that items owned by UW-W Libraries be sent to your home at no charge.
Request that items owned by other UW System Libraries be sent to your home at no charge.
Use your UW-W HawkCard to borrow items while visiting other UW System Libraries. Go to the library's website to see the policy for UW System in-person visits.
A DE or graduate student may also place a request for scanned journal articles or book chapters from physical items owned by UW-W using Document Delivery.
These will be delivered via UW-W email. Watch this video tutorial to see how to do this.
Any questions or concerns about Document Delivery should be submitted to the ILL department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you encounter problems accessing library resources, such as access to library databases or the full-text of articles, see our Troubleshooting guide or call the Reference Desk at 262-472-1032.
