Is there an article you need for your research, but our library doesn’t have it? Never fear! You can request articles via our interlibrary loan service. It’s a quick and free online process for the active UMD community (faculty/staff/students), and we’ll try to get an electronic copy of your article (pdf) as quickly as possible. Turnaround time varies for those we can obtain, but many articles are received within 48 hours.
Do you need a book we don’t own? The same service can get you books from other libraries! Books we can obtain take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to arrive, so please plan ahead.
