Welcome to Library on Request, the document delivery service from the Medical College of Wisconsin Libraries to Medical College of Wisconsin, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, and Froedtert Hospital faculty, staff, and students. Through Library on Request, book chapters and journal articles can be requested and delivered electronically subject to licensing and copyright restrictions. Books can also be delivered to any of our three libraries so that you may use the item at the library which is most convenient to you. We provide items to our users from the collections at Todd Wehr (MCW) Library, Children's Hospital Library, and Froedtert Hospital Library as well as from other libraries through our Interlibrary Loan service.
