Interlibrary Loan

Welcome!

 
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 the library at 205-665-6101 for assistance.

If you are a distance learning only student at UM, please call the ILL office at 205-665-6103 for support with account creation, full-text access through our catalog and making requests. ILL office hours are M-F, 8:00 a.m-5:00 p.m..

** Please note that it can take up to a month to receive an item.  You will need to put the "need before" date about a month out to avoid your request expiring. The "need before" date does not increase the speed of your request; it tells the system to automatically cancel your request after that date.**

**Students: we cannot process or provide required textbooks through Interlibrary Loan. Requests for course materials will be automatically canceled when they are received.**
