The ILL office will be closed from 12/23/22 through 1/2/23.
Due to lending library closures for the holidays, UVMs Winter Break, and high holiday mail volume this time of year leading to more books getting lost, requests for loans placed after 12/14/22 will be held until 1/4/23, unless we can find a local supplier.
We will continue to process article requests up until 12/22/22 if lenders are supplying. Article ordering resumes 1/4/23 as ILL libraries nation-wide reopen.
Renewal requests that you submit over Winter Break will be processed in January and overdue notices will be generated while the office is closed, but no billing will take place until January 2023.
Interlibrary Loan supplies materials not owned by the UVM Libraries for UVM students, faculty, staff, UVM Medical Center employees, and Health Research Associates.
Interlibrary Loan works best for users with one-time, short-term needs. Users who need materials for long-term use should recommend a purchase.
