Staff will post a scanned pdf to the requester's ILLiad account. Please use the ILLiad form for either an Article or Book Chapter when submitting Document Delivery requests.
The Interlibrary Loan Department works with other libraries and information providers to obtain research materials not held by Fogler Library. Patrons with valid IDs: faculty, retired UMaine faculty, staff, graduate students and undergraduate students can use the request function to borrow from other URSUS libraries. There is no need to place an interlibrary loan request for items held in URSUS, or in MaineCat. The interlibrary loan staff will search and request items not available through the URSUS request function or MaineCat.
