What is Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery? The Biomedical Library Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Department supplies University students, faculty and staff with library materials from remote locations as well as from the University Libraries' own collections. More specifically:

  • Interlibrary Loan is the process through which the Biomedical Library borrows materials not owned by USA from other libraries (world wide). This service is available for University students, faculty and staff. As a Resource Library in the National Network of Libraries of Medicine we participate in national and global network of interlibrary loan systems.
  • Document Delivery service provides University students, faculty and staff the option to request materials from the library's collection. For a fee (details here) the ILL/DD department will pull and copy materials from its University's library holdings.
