Collections Access
As classes are delivered in an alternate format please remember the UW-Green Bay Libraries has a rich collection of online content, including journals, e-books, streaming video, and many databases.  Use our electronic content through Search@UW on the library website or through the databases list While accessing library materials from off-campus you will need to sign-in with your UWGB technology account.  If you have issues signing into library resources, please chat with us, call or email

We understand it may be difficult to access physical materials at this time. You may therefore need to use Interlibrary Loan more than usual. See our Interlibrary Loan Guide ( for information on making requests for electronic materials. We expect a high volume of electronic requests during this period and as a result you may experience a longer wait time than usual. We appreciate your patience as we work to provide research materials. If needed, please contact us to make arrangements for alternate methods of access to physical materials.

You can renew physical items online by signing into your ILLiad or Search@UW account here: If you are unable to renew your items this way, please email and we will work with you.

If you need help with obtaining materials for your use with your classes, that cannot be accessed via our existing digital and electronic resources, please contact Joan Robb ( for assistance. We will do our best to obtain digital versions of print resources for use with your classes.

Using Library Materials in an Online Environment

If you have questions about using library materials in an online environment please see our Integrating Library Resources into Canvas guide For copyright questions, please see the UWGB Fair Use Checklist on the copyright guide or chat with a librarian for help.

Archives and Area Research Center

Research Assistance will be provided by email and phone. You may contact us at or (920) 465-2539

During open hours, limited research assistance will be available. Collections remain accessible to those who are able to come to the Archives Department.

For student projects dependent upon archival materials, we will attempt to provide remote access within our staffing means. The remote access would take the form of digitizing limited portions of collections. Students must submit specific citations of collection parts they would like digitized. Due to staffing levels we would not have the capability of digitizing entire collections or even entire boxes of collections. Students and faculty members needing remote access to archival collections should contact the Archives Coordinator, Deb Anderson (, for more information and to work out a process for obtaining access.

The entire UW-Green Bay Libraries Staff understands that this is a very stressful time for all of you and our students. We also know that is in times of uncertainty that people turns towards libraries to help provide some sense of normalcy and calm. We are dedicating to help provide that to our UWGB Community, so please know that as always we are here to help you with your information, research, and teaching needs. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us for assistance. We will do everything we can to get you the resources you need to continue to serve our students.”
