UBorrow is a service of the Big Ten Academic Alliance. It enables patrons to search for and request print books and other items directly from 15 university libraries and the Center for Research Libraries, with combined collections of more than 90 million volumes.
Advantages to using UBorrow include:
· Receive items faster than with recalls of UMD Libraries materials or Interlibrary Loan requests to libraries outside the state of Maryland (USMAI) system. Typical turnaround time is within one week.
· Keep items longer. Loan periods for print books are 3 months with guaranteed 1 month renewal.
· Items will not be recalled except under unusual circumstances.
To begin searching UBorrow, simply go here. And thank you for using AskUs!
