Request It

You have several means of requesting items through the University Libraries. Not sure if you can use these services? Find your patron type on our Access to Collections & Facilities page to get the most out of your library resources.


You may request any circulating item from any campus library or USMAI library through the catalog, whether it is on the shelf or checked out.  Items on hold in the McKeldin Library are now located behind the Library Services Desk.
UMD Faculty & Staff - Try the Department Delivery option for requested items. 

Interlibrary Loan

UMD Affiliated patrons can borrow materials and request articles from journals from thousands of libraries that are not in the USMAI system.

Suggest a Purchase

Is there a book, e-book, or journal that you think the University Libraries should have in their collections? Suggest that we buy the resource (print or electronic) using an electronic form.
