Other Libraries


UM participates in NAAL's Library Access Program which allows currently enrolled students and currently employed faculty and staff to access the library buildings and services of other participating academic institutions. This agreement provides access to the library buildings and collections (including on-campus access to databases). Certain services, like Interlibrary loan, must be placed at the home institution. Participants must follow the circulation policies of the participating institution(s).
