Get Your Wiscard!

Depending upon your UW-Madison status you may need to have a valid Wiscard in addition to your NetID in order
to access electronic resources from off campus and to request article and book delivery services.

Prior to the fall of 2015, UW-Madison affiliates needed only their NetID to use library resources. Now, a Wiscard may need to be obtained from the Wiscard Office at Union South and it needs to be renewed every five years.

Before going to the Wiscard Office, contact them to ensure your information is in their database.
If you are off-site, when you point to a licensed resource, you will be prompted to log in with your NetID. See Off-campus Online Access for more information. You may even want to try our remote access bookmarklet.

UW Health and UWMF users may be able to use Citrix to access Ebling resources remotely. Read more about this option.
