While the University Library has vast collections of research materials on campus, sometimes the stuff you need is not available here. As a UM student, staff or faculty member, you can request that the Library borrow items on your behalf from other academic libraries.
Staff in the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) department quickly locate books or copies of journal articles from other libraries on your behalf, at no cost to you. If you don't find what you need in our collections (by searching the library catalog), simply complete the request form with your citation information. You will be notified when the book, journal article, etc. is ready for your use.
