Resources for Distance Learning & Teaching

Summer 2020 Support

Library services remain available even as our buildings are closed.

For Students and For Faculty tabs provide specific information on our resources and services.

Throughout this semester students, faculty, and staff can continue to access the library's resources online, and librarians are available for questions by phone (Andersen Circulation: 262-472-5511; Reference Help: 262-472-1032; Lenox: 608-758-6533), by email (library@uww.edu), by WebEx appointments with librarians, and through our online chat service.

Due dates for materials are extended to the end of the semester. Fines for late equipment have been suspended during this time (there have been no fines on books, DVDs, games, and other collections since 2019).

Returning Library Materials

Items other than equipment may be returned at the outside book drop, located on the mall-side, Library entrance (door 12) of the Andersen Building. The book drop is to the far left of the doors in the stone wall. Equipment MUST be returned to the library during a pre-arranged time. Please use the Pick Up form and note that you are scheduling an equipment return.

The book drop is to the far left of the doors in the stone wall.

If you cannot return library materials to the book drop you can ship the items (NOT equipment) to the library. This should be the last option. If you do chose to ship the items, please:

  • Put a tracking number on it,
  • Make sure the package has enough insurance (lost items are generally charged $100 per item but most shipping has basic $50 insurance coverage)
  • If the items get lost in shipping, you are responsible for the replacement costs.
