Interlibrary Loan


We are extending the due dates on all items, as we are unable to accept returns. There will be no fines during the COVID-19 closure. We continue to request articles and book chapters that can be filled through electronic resources.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services support the coursework and scholarly research of the UMD community, providing access to materials that are not owned by Martin Library or cannot be borrowed from another University of Minnesota library through Get It. Be sure to check the library catalog to see if we have materials before requesting them through interlibrary loan.
