Interlibrary Loan for Society Materials
Any item that circulates from the Wisconsin Historical Society Library can be loaned to a patron of another library through interlibrary loan. Rare, fragile, unbound and heavily used materials (including all genealogical and many local history resources) do not circulate and thus are not eligible for interlibrary loan.
The Library has duplicate copies of some Wisconsin county histories and Wisconsin censuses on microfilm. These duplicates can be sent via interlibrary loan. Some non-circulating resources can be copied for remote researchers via interlibrary loan (depending on physical condition and copyright compliance).
Please note: All interlibrary loan requests should originate from a researcher's home library. Interlibrary loan requests for Society materials are handled by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries.
