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.
MCW Libraries offers a document delivery service for MCW, Children's Wisconsin, and Froedtert Hospital faculty, staff, and students. Book chapters and journal articles can be requested and delivered electronically subject to licensing and copyright restrictions. Books can also be delivered to any of our three locations so that you may pick up the item at the location which is most convenient to you. If we don't have the requested item in our collection, we'll do our best to find it through interlibrary loan (ILL). We provide items to our users from the collections at Todd Wehr (MCW) Library, Children's Wisconsin, and Froedtert Hospital Library as well as from other libraries through our Interlibrary Loan service.
This service is available for the following purposes:
Fees may apply for this service depending on your affiliation to MCW. View our Fee Structure chart to learn more.
Use Clio to request temporary access to textbooks, or to request book chapters and journal articles that aren't available in our library collection.
If you would like to request that MCW Libraries purchase a book or subscribe to a journal, fill out the book or journal purchase request form. We welcome your recommendations for adding content to our current holdings, but cannot guarantee that we will have the funds available to acquire them.
