Accessing Relocated Collections

The UW–Madison Libraries are involved in several projects to re-envision our service methods, delivery models, and spaces to better support the research, teaching, and learning needs of our evolving campus. As part of this larger process, through the Facilities Master Plan efforts and our consolidation work, we will better align our library spaces with the needs of our users. Part of this process will involve the relocation of collections at some of our campus libraries, making these items temporarily inaccessible.

Why is the library I used to select as a pick-up location for requested materials no longer listed?

Several of our libraries are undergoing renovations in areas that may require a collection be made temporarily inaccessible. Please visit the specific library page to see more details on these projects.

How do I select a different library as a pick-up location?

Each time you request an item in the catalog, you select a pick-up library from the list of available locations. To do so, please follow these directions.

For Interlibrary Loan (ILL) requests, you are only able to have one location set for all requests. In order to change your current pick-up location you need to log-in to your ILL account, scroll down to review “my account information” and click on “change pick-up library.”

What are other options for delivery of materials?

In the future, there may be an option to have materials delivered to a faculty/staff mailbox. The libraries are working on a pilot for this service with the libraries currently undergoing renovations.

What if I don’t see my question listed?

If you do not see an answer to your question, please Ask a Librarian.
