About the Social Work Library


Delivery of Library Materials & Open Return

Materials from libraries across campus, UW-System or Inter-Library loan may be delivered to the Social Work Library for pickup. You will automatically be notified by email when they are available.

Materials checked out from any other library on campus or from any UW-System library may be returned at the Social Work Library to be discharged and routed to the home library. Our two drop boxes (outside in Lot 21 or inside on the first floor by the elevator) may also be used for Open Return.
