Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
What is interlibrary loan? Interlibrary loan (or "ILL") is a service UMA provides that allows you to borrow books, articles, and other materials from other libraries across the state and country if UMA doesn't have what you're looking for. We are only able to fulfill requests that do not have an associated fee or cost.
Who can use interlibrary loan? Current students, faculty, and staff of UMA may use ILL services. Community borrowers may request items through URSUS or MaineCAT, but they do not have access to OCLC ILL.
We may be unable to fulfill requests for reference books, fragile or rare items, textbooks, dissertations, and journal volumes.
Please do not remove ILL labels.
Charges will apply for unreturned items.
