Interlibrary Loan Service


The University of Mississippi Libraries Interlibrary Loan Service provides faculty, staff and students with research materials not available in the University Libraries collections. There is no charge to UM Faculty, staff, or eligible students for normal ILL service in support of their scholarly or University-related research. All fees from other libraries for ILL services are absorbed by the University Libraries. However, users will be charged for lost materials.
