Reserve Materials

Items placed on reserve are checked out with your UW-M/WC I.D. at the Circulation Desk in the Library. Scanner is available for use at no cost. Individual instructors select the loan period for reserves:

  • 2 Hour/No Overnight (Overdue fine: $1/hour) around the clock
  • 1-Day & 3-Day (Overdue fine: $1/day)


Laptop Computers are available for current UW-Marshfield/Wood County students to check out. They circulate for 3 calendar days and are due at 9 AM the day due. Laptop fines are $5 per day and run daily (including weekends).


Renewals are generally permitted and encouraged as necessary. If materials are late, however, the fine varies based on the type of material and circulation period. You can avoid fines by returning materials before they become overdue. Patrons could also be charged for excessive and/or deliberate damage to library materials. Certain services (including interlibrary loan) are not available to a patron with outstanding fines or overdue materials.
