Please Note: Froedtert Health has implemented a new security protocol which has resulted in the degradation of on-campus access to MCW Libraries' electronic resources. Users on the Froedtert network must sign in via OpenAthens when attempting to access electronic library resources (including UpToDate, VisualDx, etc.). MCW Libraries is aware of this change and is working to provide a permanent access solution. If you have MCW credentials, please sign in via MCW employees and students when prompted. If you are a Froedtert employee, click here to register for an OpenAthens account or view more information.
The Student Resources LibGuide provides quick access to library resources of most interest to students. Use the tabs to see the lists of the P1, M2, MSA, MSGC, and Pharmacy Student textbooks and to find availability information in electronic and/or print book formats. Send suggestions/feedback to LibraryTW@mcw.libanswers.com.
Our resources are available anytime, anywhere and on any device. Learn more about how to access resources from off-campus.
