Get Stuff from Other Libraries

Home Delivery for Online Students

If you are an online student or a student from the Manitowoc or Marinette campuses who lives outside of Brown or Sheboygan counties, you can have library materials delivered to your home for no additional charge. You are responsible for returning library materials at your expense, by mail or an alternate method of your choice, by the due date.

Follow the regular directions to find and request materials. The steps for requesting home delivery depend on the system you are using.


If the item you want is in Search@UW, choose "UW-Green Bay Online Education" as your pickup location, and put your home mailing address in the comment field.

Both UWGB Libraries Requests and UW System Requests have a pickup location option and a comment field for your address.

ILLiad (Interlibrary Loan)

If you want a book, book chapter, or multimedia item that is not listed in Search@UW, you can request it in ILLiad. To request that these items are sent to your home, go to your ILLiad profile and select “Online Education” for your delivery location. Then, check the address listed on your profile. If it is not correct, email with your current address.  

The selected delivery location will be used for all requests placed in ILLiad.

You can have items you request in ILLiad mailed to your home by selecting the delivery location "Online Education."

Returning materials

You can return items by mail or drop them off at any UW System library. The items will not be checked in until they arrive at Green Bay. If you return them to another UW System library, please email to let us know.

To mail materials, go to a Post Office and use the Media Mail service with free tracking. Media Mail is cost-effective option from the United States Postal Service, and prices start at $3.92. Because items need to be weighed, you must go to a Post Office to send items via Media Mail.

If you are unable to get to a Post Office, you can use USPS Ground Advantage shipping (costs start at $4.75). Go to to make a Click-N-Ship label and schedule a package pickup.

Items do not have to be in a specific type of packaging. You can reuse our materials or use your own. Please seal packages well so items do not get damaged.

Address the package to:
