  • Be a UW-Eau Claire student enrolled in distance education courses and live outside of the Eau Claire area.
  • Register for this service once each semester that you qualify.
  • Use your UW-Eau Claire email address (or have email forwarded).

Request a book 

Books from our library's circulating collection are mailed to you at no charge. You are responsible for the cost of returning the books (as well as for any overdue charges or replacement fees that might be incurred). Please allow at least a week for delivery.

To request books and articles, you will need to use a Private I.D. number. This number is different from your PIN, student I.D., or any other number you use on campus. 

Request a journal article

Journal articles are scanned and emailed to you. Please allow a couple of days for delivery. Requests may be limited to 4/week.

If McIntyre Library doesn't have what you need:

  • Journal Articles: We can request copies of journal articles from other libraries. It may take anywhere from a couple of days up to 2 weeks to get the article.
  • Books: Through Interlibrary Loan Department we can get some books from other libraries and mail them to you. However, it may be faster to go through your local library. Please check with your local public library about getting a book you need through their Interlibrary Loan service.
  • If you live near any of the UW campuses, Universal Borrowing (UB) is fast way of getting books available at any UW System library.

Your Email Address

  • Journal articles, fees, and overdue notices are emailed to your UW-Eau Claire address. If you prefer to use another email address, you may request to have your UW-Eau Claire email forwarded to that email address.
