A guide to finding and using eBooks from the UWM Libraries collections.

Can I get books from other Libraries?

If the book is owned by the UWM Libraries but is checked out, you may use the "Recall Request" button available in Primo interface.

When the UWM Libraries do not own an item that you are looking for:

  • Search the UW System via Search@UW for your title. If you find it, you can place a recall on the item to have it delivered to UW-Milwaukee. 
  • Search WorldCat, a catalog to libraries worldwide. Once you locate a record in WorldCat, click on the Find It! button and then the interlibrary loan link to request the book online.

See the Options for Obtaining Library Materials page for a more detailed list of available services.
