UW System Requests & Interlibrary Loan
UW System Requests
Search@UW allows you to request physical items (items that must be returned) from other UW libraries. A UW system request is faster than ILL and should arrive within 1-3 business days.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
Interlibrary Loan allows you to request anything from libraries across the globe. ILL is the perfect way to get electronic copies of articles that UWGB doesn't own, as well as books, movies, music or anything else you're interested in. Articles usually arrive within 1-3 days and physical items are received within 5-7 business days. Physical items take a little longer than requests from within the UW system, but it's still fast!
