A database is a collection of information.
Most often, in library terminology, this means an online collection of articles--scholarly journal articles, magazine articles, and newspaper articles.
Some databases are "multidisciplinary"--meaning they contain articles on a wide variety of topics. Other databases are more specialized and may focus on articles from a particular subject area such as business, history, or psychology.
Option 1: Requesting
Use Search@UW to find books, media and more by using the UW Libraries dropdown menu and entering your search terms.
Tip: sign in to your account right away to see all available request options
Click on the UW Request option under Get It (remember to sign in!) then click Submit
If the book you requested is unavailable, you will receive an email with alternative request options.
Once your item arrives at your campus library, you will be notified via email to pick up the item at your library’s main circulation desk.
Option 2: Visiting
If you find yourself near another UW Library, you are welcome to visit and check out items at that library using your UW-Green Bay ID
You don't have to travel back to that library to return your item, just drop it in your campus library’s book drop and we'll send it back.
Note: the item will not be officially 'returned' until it is checked in at the lending library.
