  • Welcome back!  We look forward to assisting you with your inter-library loan needs.  During this time of increased health concerns, please keep in mind that returned items may be dropped in the outside book drop or at the reserve desk.  Most questions, renewal requests or other inquiries may easily be handled by calling 207.581.1671 or emailing  If you need to speak with someone in person, please stop by our new location on the third floor of Fogler.  Best wishes for a productive and safe semester.
  • Interlibrary loan requests for books, DVDs, or other physical items is taking longer than expected during this health emergency.  Many libraries around the country are currently not shipping physical materials.  We will endeavour to do our best to locate a library that is willing to ship the material.
  • When creating an account do not use the "@" as part of your login name.  Access errors occur.
  • SMS Text notification is now available. Inquire about details by contacting an ILL staff member at 207.581.1671 or
  • Fill in as many fields possible as your information reference allows (author, title, publisher, date for books and author, article title, journal title, volume, issue, pages, and date for articles are important).  The more you can provide the quicker ILL staff and other libraries can process.  If unsure of some of the information in the reference you have, place that information in the NOTES field near the bottom of the form.


University of Maine faculty, staff, and students may use this service to obtain pdf copies of journal articles or book chapters (up to 30 pages) held by Fogler Library. 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.
