Borrowing from Other Libraries

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 (ILL)

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 ILL requests.

Use ClioWeb to:

  • place requests for books, articles and other library materials not available in our collections
  • check the status of current ILL requests
  • view past ILL borrowing history
  • keep track of due dates on ILL materials
  • submit ILL renewal requests
  • and contact ILL staff with questions

Log into ClioWeb to request ILL materials

Please remember to plan ahead since it may take time to obtain the material!

Please do not use ClioWeb for requesting codes and standards. Please use the Code and Standard Request Form.

For more information on interlibrary loan, please read the ILL policies.


INFOpass allows you obtain materials directly from other metro-Milwaukee libraries. This system supports cooperative borrowing of library material at most libraries within the greater Milwaukee community. To check out materials from other local libraries, you must get an INFOpass form from a librarian. The following rules apply:

  • The needed material cannot be in the MSOE collection.
  • A maximum of three items can be obtained on one INFOpass.
  • The INFOpass must be completed and signed at MSOE PRIOR to going to the holding library. Reference staff can help determine the location and availability of needed material.
  • The lending library may impose daily fines for overdue Infopass material. Pay attention to the loan rules when obtaining material via the INFOpass system. MSOE has agreed to bill delinquent borrowers for non-returned INFOpass material.

Cooperative Lending Libraries

MSOE has a cooperative lending program with the Medical College of Wisconsin. 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 their general collection books. In exchange for this privilege, we allow faculty, students and staff from the Medical College access to our collection.
