BEV BUTULA: Wisconsin TechSearch continues to be a useful resource

Some things are worth repeating!

Way back in 2009 I wrote about Wisconsin TechSearch, the University of Wisconsin College of Engineering document delivery program. Well, it is six years later and it continues to be a valuable service. If you are not familiar with Wisconsin TechSearch, stop what you are doing to check them out.

This confidential service assists researchers in locating copies of articles, conference papers, government documents, along with book loans from the UW-Madison libraries. Often legal researchers need to look beyond Westlaw, Lexis, CCH or BNA to locate information. Many times the articles needed span other professions – engineering, biology, medical, architecture, and technology. And, as many individuals have discovered, these articles are not necessarily freely available online.

Wisconsin TechSearch can assist in providing articles in a timely manner and at a reasonable cost.

It is important to remember that end users are responsible for determining their copyright obligations. Individuals need to create an account, however it is a simple process.

Questions? Researchers can contact Wisconsin TechSearch via phone, online submission or online chat.
