The Interlibrary Loan Service allows patrons to request materials needed for their research that are not owned by UMBC.
ILL is available at no charge to current UMBC faculty, students and staff. However, a cap may be set on the $ amount requested for payment.
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.
