If Andersen Library does not have the item that you need, or it is checked out, the Library can usually borrow the item from another library. The lending service you use depends upon the resource you wish to borrow. For assistance, please contact a reference librarian.
Search for books in Research@UWW's "Books, Media & more (UW Whitewater)" scope. Most will be cataloged with the subject heading "Indians of North America" or the name of specific tribe. Here are some particularly useful titles:
