The Wisconsin Department of Transportation Library is located
on the first floor (Room 100) of the
Hill Farms State Office Building, 4802 Sheboygan Avenue, Madison,
Wisconsin, 53707. The library is open to the general
The WisDOT Library openly lends its materials to all institutions
who are members of an interlibrary loan network. If you would like
to borrow an item from the WisDOT Library, you must place an
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request through your local library. In turn,
your library places the request with the WisDOT Library and is
responsible for the safe return of borrowed materials.
For more information on this network, please visit the Online
Computer Library Catalog's (OCLC) Interlibrary Loan page. If your local library is not a
member of OCLC, please ask for an American Library Association's
(ALA) Interlibrary Loan form, which can be mailed or faxed to the
WisDOT Library. Direct loans from the WisDOT Library are
handled on a case by case basis.
Borrowing for WisDOT staff WisDOT staff may borrow items not owned by the WisDOT Library
through our membership in the OCLC Interlibrary Loan network.
This network includes university, large public and corporate
libraries and many of these loans can be obtained at little or no
cost. Items available to borrow include books, CDs, DVDs,
reports, videos and journal articles. If you have a item you
would like the library to borrow for you, please contact us
and provide as much information about the item as possible (i.e.
book or journal article title, author, year published)
The loan period for items borrowed from the WisDOT Library is one
month, which is renewable unless another patron has placed a hold on
Holds Whenever a person wishes to borrow an item which is already on
loan, that person may request that library staff place a
"hold" on that item. When the item is returned to the
library, the staff will notify the person requesting the item and
"hold" the item at the library. Please contact the library
to place a hold.
Reference services and document delivery
WisDOT Library staff is available to provide answers to reference
questions received from the general public. Due to the
sometimes heavy volume or in-depth nature of the questions, please
allow for a reasonable amount of time for a response.
Visitors to the WisDOT Library may use public access
Internet terminals to download materials or access Web sites for transportation research
purposes. Photocopying of journal articles and sections of
reports is allowed provided the amount is not voluminous. In
accordance with national copyright laws, only one copy of a journal
article or book/report section is allowed for research purposes
only, and may not be resold or reused for profit or other reasons.
