Interlibrary Loan allows you to request materials from libraries across the globe. ILL is the perfect way to get electronic copies of articles that the UW-Green Bay Libraries don't own, as well as books, movies, music or anything else you're interested in. Articles generally arrive within 1-3 business days and physical items within 5-8 business days.
Detailed requesting information can be found on the Placing an ILL Request page.
The best use of Search@UW is when you need a large number or a variety of resources. It is also helpful when your research question spans a number of different subjects, making it difficult to choose a single-subject database.
However, not all database content is available through Search@UW. There will also be many instances in which a single-subject database will have enough content that a user will not need the multiple resources connected to Search@UW. In these cases, a single database search may be easier and more efficient.
