Interlibrary Loan

If you need an item not available in the UWFox library or in electronic format, there are several ways to obtain it. These services are available to students and personnel of UW Colleges.

Borrowing within the UW System

Using "Search @UW" you can order books from other UW campuses, click Find and Request located below the book’s information. You will need to sign in with your campus username and password to order materials. Once signed in, you must select the library, item and pick up library. It is very important to change the pickup library to UW Colleges as the system defaults to whatever library owns the book. Then you must choose a Pick Up Location as UW Fox Valley to have the book delivered here.

ILLiad: For Journal Articles & Items Not Owned in UW Libraries

Just complete this Fill-in-the-blank online request form. You make a request for an item, we order it, and notify you when it is received. You return it to us, and we ship it back to the lending library. If you request articles, they will be sent electronically to your desktop.

Courtesy Card

You get a temporary borrower's card (courtesy card) from us and visit a local library that has the item you need. You check it out and return it to that library.
