Can’t get it online? Or not willing to pay $35 for the privilege?


If UVM does not have online access to a particular journal article, and it is not in UVM libraries, Dana Library Interlibrary Loan staff can get the article for you, often within a day or two.

Usually journal articles are delivered to you as PDFs attached to an email message. You can also order books that UVM does not own, which will then be available to you for three weeks. This service is free for UVM and FAHC staff, faculty and students.

In FY09 the Dana Medical Library obtained over 3,000 journal articles and books through interlibrary loan (ILL). One satisfied customer reports that “The turn-around times on ILL material and helpfulness of the staff are truly outstanding and again, my research productivity has been the beneficiary.” Fill out the ILL form, find out more in our ILL FAQ or email questions to danaill@uvm.edu.
