Inter-Archives and Interlibrary Loans

 The University Archives assists faculty, students, and the general public with locating and obtaining access to materials located at the Wisconsin Historical Society and other archival repositories across Wisconsin.  Only a limited amount of material may be transferred at one time.  Due to their physical condition or financial value, some materials do not transfer.
