Obtaining Non-UWM Resources

UW-System Borrowing: You may place requests for materials from other UW-System Libraries. Always allow a minimum of 3 working days to process these requests. After you've placed your UW-System Borrowing request, you may track your request through your Library Account.

If the UWM Libraries or other UW-System Libraries do not have an items that you need, following are other options that may help you obtain materials from other libraries.

Interlibrary Loan: When articles and materials are not available through UW System Borrowing, obtain them by making a request through ILLiad. Graduate students may request articles using the Rush Request Service to receive articles in 24 to 48 hours. For more on ILLiad, see FAQs. (Exception: Items that are held at the UWM Libraries, but are on reserve or are checked out, may NOT be requested through Interlibrary Loan).

InfoPass: If an item is not held by UWM Libraries, but is available at another local library, you may be able to obtain the item from that library using an InfoPass. Stop by the Research Help Desk at the UWM Libraries and be sure to bring your valid UWM ID card. If an InfoPass is issued, you will have to make the trip to pick up the item at the participating local library.
