Using Andersen Library

Andersen Library is open to the public. A valid university ID card or community borrower's card is required to check out materials. The patron on whose card an item is checked out is responsible for that item. Patrons may borrow any circulating item; however, newspapers, magazines, and microforms do not circulate.

Materials checked out and not returned on time will be assessed overdue fines. For items checked out and lost, the user must pay replacement costs and fines.

Theft or mutilation of materials is a misdemeanor or felony and covered by Wisconsin Statute 943.61. All security incidents will be reported to University officials.

Please handle library materials with care. Food and drink may damage library materials and are forbidden in computer workstation areas.

In accordance with University policy, hoverboards, skateboards or other similar wheeled devices are not allowed to be used in the Library. For more information, please refer to: http://www.uww.edu/policies/skating-and-bicycling

Patrons should be careful not to disturb others or to prevent them from concentrating on their work. Cell phone calls should be taken in the main lobby (outside the doors) or stairwells. Cell phone ringers should be turned off while in the library.

Children under the age of 16 may not use the Andersen Library without an accompanying adult supervision. Exceptions to this are made for those participating in recognized University of Wisconsin-Whitewater programs and K-12 visiting classes.

Students, staff and faculty may access library resources from within the library or remotely using their NetID and password. Non-university patrons may use these resources from within the Library.

Service Dogs are welcome in the Andersen Library, however, comfort and therapy animals are not allowed outside of scheduled events hosted by the Library. Service dogs must be on a leash at all times. Please refer to the Service Animal Policy located in the UW-Whitewater University Policies Resources Handbook: http://www.uww.edu/policies/service-animal-policy

Andersen Library reserves the right to suspension of library privileges.

  • Displays on Library users' computer monitors or research materials at Library users' work spaces, and
  • Faces (or seek permission from identifiable individuals).

Please request permission from the Library Director in advance, providing information including

  • Name and contact information of the requestor,
  • Campus or other affiliation, e.g., UWW student,
  • Purpose of the project, e.g., specify the course for which this is an assignment,
