UPDATE: As of August 17th, we are no longer offering our contact free pickup service since the library has re-opened. Items requested through Resource sharing can be picked up at the Circulation Desk.

Murphy Library is now offering a contact-free pickup service for UWL faculty, staff, and students who want to check out materials during this period when the library is closed to the public. This service is only available for physical materials located at Murphy Library at this time.

Pickup service is available Mondays through Fridays, 10:00am – 3:00pm.
