Students, faculty and staff of NEW ERA schools may borrow materials from the Cofrin Library free of charge. In order to check out materials, simply present your school ID at the library's Circulation Desk and let them know you are from a NEW ERA school. You will be asked to fill out a patron registration form. Borrowing privileges will be granted immediately. These privileges are good for one semester. Library privileges can be extended additional semesters as long as you are associated with a NEW ERA school.
Borrowing privileges for NEW ERA patrons are subject to all rules and regulations established for members of the Cofrin Library's campus community. For information, check the Cofrin Library circulation policies. The loan period for books is 28 days, unless otherwise stated. Most items can be renewed twice. Renewals can be made in person, by phone, or through the library's online catalog.
Please note that Interlibrary Loan and Universal Borrowing services are only available to UW-Green Bay faculty, staff and students. If you are interested in borrowing items from other libraries, please contact your home institution's library.
