Information for Transfer Students : Off-Campus Access

Welcome to UW-Madison! We hope this guide will provide you with information about our Libraries. Some services, resources, etc. may be different from your previous academic institution.

Off-Campus Access

You are able to access almost all of the library's online resources off-campus.  All you need is your campus NetID and password.
