If you are enrolled at an institution other than UW-Platteville, you are encouraged to contact your institution's library first to find out what services and resources are available to you. It is the Karrmann Library's mission to select and build collections supporting the curriculum and research interests at UW-Platteville. We may not necessarily have access to the kinds of materials you need for courses taken at other institutions.
