Current and retired UMass Amherst faculty and staff, and current students may use Interlibrary Loan services to obtain a loan of books and other materials from a library beyond the Five Colleges or to obtain copies of articles and other materials from any library at no charge.

All Interlibrary Loan - aka ILL - requests must be submitted via our online form. A separate request must be submitted for each article or book needed. You will be required to fill out a "First Time User Registration" with your contact information and preferences. The username and password are the library barcode found on your UCard. This registration sets up your ILL account and needs to be filled out only once.
