Milwaukee Satellite Library Mission & Access Policy

The Library of the U.S. Courts for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, located in the Milwaukee Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, serves the research needs of the judges and court staff in all of the court locations in the district.

The library is open, as a courtesy, to members of the bar, government employees and the general public on weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The library will be closed on all federal holidays and other days when the federal courthouse is closed. On occasion the library may be closed when staff attend work-related events elsewhere.

Non-court users are asked to sign in at the front desk and may only use materials in the library. Photocopiers are available. Some older materials are kept in store rooms. If you do not see a volume you need on the shelf, check with the library staff who will retrieve materials from the store room. Materials which are checked out to chambers will not be retrieved for use by non- court users.

The computers in the library are for use by court staff only. The courthouse does not have mobile access for computers.
