How can I check to see which materials are available at the library?
Check the MERLIN catalog to determine if the Health Sciences Library (MU HSL) owns the material.
How can I place a request for materials?
Requests are accepted via the DOCLINE and OCLC Interlibrary Loan systems. Loansome Doc requesting via PubMed is also available to non-affiliates. For patrons that do not have access to these systems, the Registration for Non-MU Affiliates Form is the means of getting an account created in the MU Libraries ILL@MU Interlibrary Loan system.
How long does it take?
Most requests for articles are received and processed within two business days. If the request is needed sooner, a rush service is available. Please phone to alert the Interlibrary Loan Dept to rush requests.
Is there a charge for Interlibrary Loan?
Yes, non-affiliates pay a fee for each article that is ordered.
$20 == if owned by the J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library or the Zalk Veterinary Medical Library
$30 == if borrowed from another library
$9 == surcharge for RUSH requests
*Additional surcharges may apply. The borrower is responsible for all copyright charges. Some materials cannot be lent to unaffiliated users due to license or copyright restrictions.
How do I receive materials?
Journal articles or book chapters are delivered by email if possible. Fax, mail and Fed-Ex delivery are also available.
