New Interlibrary Loan Partnership

Cofrin Library recently extended the quality and reach of its resource sharing capabilities by agreeing to join in a reciprocal partnership with Minitex. Minitex operates at the University of Minnesota and is a clearing house for a publically supported network of academic, public, state, government and special libraries in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. Minitex is a leader in the field of resource sharing and in 2012 filled nearly 270,636 loan and article requests from libraries in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

This is a great addition to Cofrin Library’s resource sharing network and grants UW-Green Bay ILL free access to the collections of over 491 libraries, which includes all thirteen libraries within the University of Minnesota library network. Minitex is also a part of the South Central Library System Delivery Service, which delivers library materials throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota. Being a part of this network means that materials filled by Minitex should arrive within the 1-3 business days. If you have any questions or comments about this new partnership, please contact Mitchell Scott, Resource Sharing Librarian, at scottm@uwgb.edu.
