Access to Library Resources

Access to library resources is restricted to qualified users.  See below for details.

Faculty

Faculty gain access to some library services after their campus logins have been set up.  Faculty can use SEARCH@UW and gain access to most of our online resources.  Access to check out materials and request materials from other UW Campuses begins up to one month before their contract starts.  See http://www.uwstout.edu/cals/ for contract start dates.  Human Resources needs to have your contract including your start date entered into their systems before you will be loaded into the library systems.

Staff

Staff gain access to some library services after their campus logins have been set up.  Staff can use SEARCH@UW and gain access to most of our online resources once their login is set up..  Access to check out materials and request from other UW Campuses starts on their first work day.  Interlibrary loan access begins on their second work day.

Graduate Students

For graduate students new to Stout access is usually turned on approximately two weeks before the start of the semester.  Continuing graduate students must be enrolled in classes for the current semester.  If you take a break to write you will need to take a special class to retain access to library resources.  Thesis-only students please contact the Graduate School about enrolling in TRDIS 700 - Library Research.  Please contact the Graduate School for details.  See http://www.uwstout.edu/grad/

Undergraduate Students

For undergraduate students new to Stout access is usually turned on approximately two weeks before the start of the semester.  Continuing undergraduate students must be enrolled in classes for the current semester or the next semester if over summer break.  

Community Users

Community Users have access to search library resources and use of some of our online resources in the library building at our Community Workstations.  A community card allows you to check out materials from the library.  Requesting of materials from other UW Campuses and Interlibrary loan services are not available to Community Users.  If you would like to sign up for a Community Card stop at the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the library.  Note: You will need to have an email address and photo identification to register for a Community Card.
