Accessing Library Resources After Graduation or Leaving UWRF

Visiting the Library

Printing and Copying

The Library has two printers located on the main level. With these machines you can print and make copies. Please talk to staff at the circulation desk for assistance with printing.

What Happens After I Leave/Graduate/Retire?

Due to binding legal agreements with vendors, we cannot provide remote/off campus electronic access to our resources to those who have left or graduated (except for faculty or staff who have received emeriti or honored retiree status). 

Student access ends on the last day of classes unless the student is enrolled for the next semester. If a student needs temporary, very short-term access due to an emergency or Incomplete, please fill out the Extended Access Request Form for Students. Please note that it can take DOTS 1-2 business days to turn on this access once approved.

If you would like to use any of our electronic resources, access is available in person at the Chalmer Davee Library via the public computer kiosks near the library front desk. These computers are marked with a brightly colored tag and do not require a login to use.

Community users (those are not currently enrolled or employed at UWRF) may check out materials by purchasing a Community Borrower Card for an annual fee of $20.  Please present a current form of ID at the Circulation Desk to obtain a Community Borrower Card. Click this link for more information. 

Database, Journal, and Articles Access

Leaving UWRF? Still want access to research databases, journals, and articles? Many of our most popular databases like Academic Search Premier are available through state-funded collections.

Both websites allow access based upon your location, but you may need to use a public library card to log on. Badgerlink users living on the MN/WI border (especially in Hudson) often do not automatically receive access because their Internet Provider listed as being in Minnesota and need to log in with a public library card. Please contact your local public library for assistance with library cards.

If you live outside of Wisconsin and Minnesota, please check with your local public library.
