History Research: Obtaining Non-UWM Materials

Search@UW: Getting Books from Other UW Libraries

  How much does it cost to make a request?

While many academic institutions charge for interlibrary loan services, we are proud to offer these services at no cost to eligible users. We are happy to provide for our patrons' research, teaching, and study needs and will do our best to acquire needed materials as efficiently as possible.

However, we ask our patrons to be mindful that interlibrary loan services are not free for the UWM Libraries. In fact, some items can be quite expensive to obtain. So, please be judicious in making your requests. That way, you can help to ensure that UWM Libraries are able to continue providing these services free of charge.
