  • 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.

  • Library Construction

    During the next few weeks, several library restrooms will be remodeled.

    We expect minimal disruption to library services, but there might be occasional construction-related noise as well as the occasional presence of construction materials.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Construction should be complete by July, 2014.
