Library

Welcome Visitors!

The University Library is designed to support the educational and research goals of the UWSP faculty, staff and students. However, the library is also open to the general public, and we encourage you to visit and utilize our resources.

Community Patrons

  • If you live in Portage County, you can access our collection through the Portage County Public Library's catalog.
  • You will need to obtain a Portage County Public Library card (if you do not already have one) to borrow materials from the University Library.
    • The PCPL card can also be used to request University Library items to be delivered to one of the PCPL locations for your convenience.

Universal Borrowing (UW-System Patrons)

  • If you work at or attend another UW college or university, you can access our collection using your UW institution's identification card. The reciprocal agreement set up between all UW system libraries is called Universal Borrowing (UB).

Visitors to the Stevens Point Area

  • If you are visiting the University Library and are neither a resident of Portage County nor a UW-System card holder, you will need to get a Guest Card if you wish to check-out resources.
    • Guest Cards are available at the Main Circulation desk located on the Library's first floor. You must be eighteen years of age and present a valid driver's license or state identification card.
  • If you are under the age of eighteen, you will need parental permission to use the University Library. Forms are available at the Main Circulation Desk.
  • If you have questions about the University Library or about accessing our collection, please contact the Main Circulation Desk at 715-346-2540 or email Andy Pech.
