At the Walter Schroeder Library, we make every effort to provide you with access to the information you need. If we do not own what you are looking for, the following services are set up to accommodate your needs.
Interlibrary Loan is a service that allows us to obtain materials that you need from other libraries. We have an online system called ClioWeb for managing ILL requests. Use ClioWeb to:
Log into ClioWeb to request ILL materials
Please remember to plan ahead as it may take time to obtain the material. Patrons will be notified when materials are available. Patrons can expect requested materials to arrive in approximately 5 to 7 business days. Some requests may take longer. We will contact you if there is a delay with a request, or if we are unable to obtain a requested item.
Please do not use ClioWeb for requesting codes and standards, instead please use the Standards Request Form.

MSOE has a cooperative lending program with the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Libraries. With a valid MSOE ID, you are able to get a special borrower’s card from the Medical College that allows you to check out books from their general collection. In exchange for this privilege, we allow faculty, students and staff from the Medical College access to our collection.
