Interlibrary Loan Service

  • The Interlibrary Loan Service allows patrons to request materials needed for their research, that are not owned by UMBC.
  • ILL is available to current UMBC faculty, students and staff.
  • Users must be registered at Circulation before ILL requests will be processed.
  • Books owned by USMAI libraries (University System of Maryland and Affiliated Institutions) should be obtained through catalogusmai rather than through ILL.
  • Book requests are for short term loans, not for the semester.
  • There will be a $4.00 per day fine for overdue ILL materials.
  • No Textbooks- ILL can not serve as a replacement for purchasing your course textbooks. Requests for titles on the current textbook list will be cancelled.  

  • ILL does not borrow leisure or recreational reading. If you have any questions please contact the Interlibrary Loan Department.
  • Although Interlibrary Loan gives you access to many more resources, it may take longer than other means of access. The average delivery time is 5-10 business days. Always start your research early for the best results. You may want to contact the Reference Desk for assistance in locating other in-house or online materials.
