Resource Sharing

Transition of service: Requesting material from other libraries

UW-Green Bay Library has transitioned to a new system for borrowing materials from other libraries. If you are familiar with requesting materials from other libraries using interlibrary loan or resource sharing, you will notice slight changes to the process. These changes have improved the process and will make it easier to get materials to you. Requests will still be filled from other UW and nearby libraries when available. This new system allows requests to automatically fill from other libraries in addition to those close to us. 

If you have questions, please contact the Library at interloan@uwgb.edu.

New requesting options will appear under a section labeled "Request Options". Digital items will be delivered to your email address and will be downloadable from your account in Search@UW.

For the best user experience and to see available request options, sign in to your library account.
