Notice about placing requests

Please note: Due to system issues, requesting of items held at non UW-Madison campuses should be made through our ILL service. We expect to have direct requests available shortly.

We have identified a problem in our catalog with locating or linking to some of our popular databases, e.g. JSTOR, Oxford Handbooks Online. We are working to resolve the issue. In the meantime, these resources can be accessed through our Database Library.
