The Clinical & Translational Science Institute of Southeastern Wisconsin represents a partnership of 8 institutions dedicated to translating research into better patient care and community health education. To support the goals of this partnership, the libraries at the different institutions have developed relationships that allow individuals at each institution to access the resources available at any of the libraries.
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.
The links below provide basic information on how to access these libraries. Individuals are encouraged to contact specific libraries directly, visit their electronic catalogs, or check their web sites for further information.
The Libraries are exploring additional ways to manage decisions about electronic collections to serve you better. We expect to build on this initial effort, and we welcome your suggestions for improvements and closer cooperation.
How to Access Libraries:
The primary function of the Library Committee is to serve as a liaison between the Library staff, MCW Administration, and the faculty of the Medical College. The Committee advises on budget development and implementation, library policies, library computer services, promotion of library use to faculty, and development and implementation of changes in library services. The Committee meets every two months.
