  • Universal borrowing

    Universal Borrowing (UB) is a service that allows UW-L students, faculty, retired faculty and staff to search the catalogs of all other libraries in the University of Wisconsin System and request titles (books, multimedia) not currently available in Murphy Library.

    Materials will be delivered directly to the circulation desk at Murphy Library within 2-4 days, or you can designate another UW library as a pick-up point. You can also visit any other UW library and check out their materials with your UW-L ID card. Click here to go to a UB search in the library catalog. Loan periods are: Faculty/staff: 1 semester; students: 28 days.

    If you are looking for specific journal articles that aren't available in the Murphy Library databases, use interlibrary loan (ILL) instead of UB. 

    If you have questions about UB, contact Access Services at cirser@uwlax.edu.

  • Walk-In Tours during opening week

    The library offers fast, no-registration tours for students, faculty, and staff during the first week of the semester. 

    Tours start in the library lobby at 12:00 noon every day of opening week, September 2, 3, 4, and 5. 

    The tours last about 20 minutes and cover the basic layout of the library, useful services, library collections, and tips to effectively use the library. Everyone is welcome to participate in these informal tours.
