Wendt Entrance
Two complete sets of RRC reports are in the Wendt Library under Call Numbers S W7511 R54//report_number. The set in "Special Collections/Archives" is the archive for the College of Engineering. People can read them in the library or make copies, but these do not circulate. The duplicate set is shelved on the 4th floor in the Regular Stacks, and these materials can be signed out. The updated record of this archive can be viewed in the Electronic Library (Title Search: RRC). Photocopies are available to other libraries of non-profit institutions by Interlibrary Loan . For business or industry they can be ordered on-line through Wisconsin TechSearch.
