Hello. You may request items from other libraries that are not part of the University System of MD (USMAI) by using Interlibrary Loan. There are two ways to do this:  


1. Use UMD Discover to find the record for the item that you wish to request.  Log into UMD Discover then under "How to get it" click the Request - ILL button.  This will bring you into your ILL Services Account, where you can place the request.  Citation information will migrate from the WorldCat record, making it easier to place a request. 

click Request - ILL

2. Log in to your ILL Services Account directly, then manually input the citation.

Thank you for using AskUs!

  1. "The Library of Congress lends books to other libraries with the stipulation that they be used only inside the borrowing library. This is consistent with LC's own policy which prohibits readers from removing books from the LC reading rooms (except for Congressional use). The policy is also intended to protect borrowing libraries from the negligence of one patron, since one overdue book will suspend all loans to a particular institution."
