UMMC only

The Interlibrary Loan Department (601-984-1234) assists library users in obtaining health resources not available at Rowland Medical Library. Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services are offered in support of research, education and patient care services at UMMC, and are available to the current faculty, staff, and students of UMMC. Delivery time for materials ranges from a few days to several weeks. Sufficient time should be allowed for receipt of items. Copyright restrictions affecting the photocopying of materials are strictly observed. Rowland Medical Library provides most document delivery of research related articles at no charge to primary users. Fees may apply for books. Occasionally, some copyright or special purchase fees may be passed on to the person requesting the materials. In these cases, the Interlibrary Loan office will contact the requestor before completing transactions. For help with ILL forms and procedures, call (601) 984-1247 or 984-1234 or contact the department at

Warning concerning copyright restrictions

The Copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction.

If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "FAIR USE," that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

The Rowland Medical Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying request if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the request would involve violation of copyright law.
