For Those Not Affiliated with UW-Madison

Academic, Public, and Special Libraries

We provide book loans and photocopying services to libraries. Academic, public or special libraries may send ILL Lending requests,  either OCLC requests (symbol “GZM”) or web form requests (if OCLC is not an option for your institution). If your institution needs a web form login, please contact  More information about our Interlibrary Loan Lending services.
