Interlibrary Loan

Welcome to Interlibrary Loan at Carmichael Library!

InterLibrary Loan allows you to widen your access to materials beyond what we provide at Carmichael through resource sharing with other libraries across the state, country  and world. We can help you locate the materials you need and assist you throughout the research process. 


If you are having trouble accessing a full-text e-article listed in our catalog, please call us at 205-665-6103 for assistance.

If you are a distance learning student from another university with privileges at UM, please call us at 205-665-6103 for support with account creation, full-text access through our catalog and making requests.
