Polk Library online catalog
Search the catalog to see what items UW Oshkosh's Polk Library owns.
You can also use UB to request that books from any UW be sent to your local UW library for checkout (usually takes 2-4 days). If you are a student but don't have a TitanCard ID, here is a link to a short video showing you how to get the 16-digit TitanCard ID number you need to place a UB request online: http://screencast.com/t/MmFjNGI1N
Delivery of books to off-campus students
Can't find it locally or online? Polk Library will mail books to students, faculty, and staff who do not regularly commute to campus. See the Delivery of Articles and Books page for details.
Does my local library have this?
If you need a journal right away, check WorldCat to see if a library in your area has the journal you are looking for (this searches college and public libraries across WI and the US). Click on the title in your results for a list of libraries near you that have a copy.
Request articles from other libraries
If the article you need is not online or at Polk Library (check Search@UW), you can request it through interlibrary loan (ILLiad). Items generally take 3-5 days to arrive at Polk. **Note: you must have a 16-digit TitanCard numberto log into ILLiad. Here is a link to a short video showing you how to get this number online: http://screencast.com/t/MmFjNGI1N
