Other UW Libraries

Other NEWIL Libraries (Northeast Wisconsin)

If you live in the Green Bay area, you may obtain a Courtesy Pass from the Cofrin Library (Green Bay Campus) Public Services Department to use any of the local public, academic, or special libraries that belong to the Northeast Wisconsin Intertype Libraries Consortium (NEWIL). This courtesy pass will give you a one time borrowing privilege at those institutions. To find out if the library you need participates, or to obtain a courtesy pass, please contact the Research Desk at 920-465-2303 or

Your Local Public Library

If you are looking for a good place to study, your local public library is often a good alternative. However, they may not always have access to the specialized scholarly resources that you need. Check out the Find Books and Media and Find Articles pages for these types of resources.
