The Library can make copies or scans of items we own.
The Library can get copies of items NOT available in our Library by borrowing from libraries throughout the U.S. There is no charge for this service.
ILLiad is the request system for borrowing from other libraries or asking for scanned copies of items we own.
Use your UTMB email username/password to log into ILLiad.
Most articles are delivered electronically through your ILLiad account. When an item you requested is available, you will receive an email prompting you to connect to your ILLiad account. Once logged in, click the Delivered Requests link from the menu on the left.
Delivered articles (or .pdf files) remain in ILLIad for 30 days. If you will need access to your article after 30 days, be sure to save it elsewhere.
Books and items that cannot be delivered electronically will be held at the Information Desk on the 2nd floor of the Library. You should receive an email notice to pick up the requested material.
