WISCAT Licensing Process Changes

Improvements are being made to simplify and streamline the WISCAT licensing process for libraries and WISCAT staff and to better align the process with our new, state accounting software.
  1. Single coverage period of January-December
  2. Earlier reminders to libraries when time to order a new license
  3. Enhanced online WISCAT order form
    • More intuitive form workflow for user
    • WISCAT Code Lookup list by city is accessible within the form
    • FEIN (Federal Employer Identification Number) field added - This info will help prevent invoicing delays
    • Downloadable form for use by single payer ordering for multiple libraries to attach to the online order
    • Single payer for 12 or more licenses is not required to use the online order form - contact WISCAT staff 
  4. After online form is submitted, DPI business office staff will mail invoice to library billing address

WISCAT license orders can be submitted starting in October. Look for an email reminder this Fall.
