The Libraries of Marquette University, the Medical College of Wisconsin, and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee provide access to their print collections and services for each other's academic communities through the Cooperative Access Program (CAP).

The Medical College of Wisconsin and Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) have a similar agreement and allow borrowing of materials by students and faculty of each respective institution. Each library issues borrowing privileges with a valid photo ID from the parent institution.
