The library provides many services to its patrons. The library's website includes Search @ UW which searches for a variety of resources within the entire UW System. It also has 100 subscription databases that contain millions of articles availble freely for students and staff. The UWMC Library staff is here to help you navigate these resources to find the materials you need.
Materials not held by the library may be borrowed from other UW libraries through interlibrary loan. Materials usually arrive within one week. Loan periods vary depending on the owning library. You can place a request for an item through this Interlibrary Loan Request Form or please ask a librarian for any assistance.
