Interlibrary Lending is a library-to-library transaction in which non-University of Miami libraries borrow circulating materials from the Otto G. Richter (Main) library, Music library, Marine, Math library, Brockway Storage and the Off-Campus Shelving Facility collections. The following University of Miami libraries have separate interlibrary loan offices: Law and Medical. Please contact them directly for information regarding their services.
Interlibrary Lending requests are typically processed via OCLC. The ILLiad Lending Request form for lending is the preferred request method for libraries unable to request items via OCLC. libraries that request materials from us via an ALA form for the first time will receive an ILLiad Username when we supply the item.
