Interlibrary Loan Borrowing Service


  • Library materials not owned by the UCHC Library may be requested by any UConn Health Center faculty, staff or student (identified by a barcoded, UCHC I.D.) by submitting an interlibrary loan request form. For assistance in using the Electronic Request Forms, read these hints .
  • The request must be related to research, education or clinical activity being pursued at UCHC.
  • A separate request form must be completely filled out for each item or article requested.
  • Books are borrowed at no charge.
  • No charge to students for delivery of journal articles.
  • Delivery of 25 articles per year, per faculty/staff, at no charge. $10 per request after 25 free.
  • It will take approximately 2+ working days to fill a journal article request.
  • Book requests will take longer due to mail time.
  • Patrons may submit up to five requests per day.
  • The Interlibrary Loan Department is responsible for all transactions--loans are from library to library. We exercise the right to impose any restrictions we deem necessary to honor the lending library's policies.
