Due to concerns regarding public health, the Karrmann Library is closed through the end of the Summer 2020 semester. It is yet to be determined if we will reopen for the start of the Fall 2020 semester on September 2nd or if we will extend our closure beyond this date. We will provide updates as the situation develops and decisions are made. Thank you.


The Elton S. Karrmann Library is a hub for information on the University of Wisconsin-Platteville campus. Books, government publications, periodicals, newspapers, and other serial titles can be found in the library’s collections. In addition, the library offers electronic books, ejournals and extensive databases. Patrons who cannot find what they need within the University of Wisconsin System may use Interlibrary loan, which provides access to materials around the world.
