    Interlibrary Loan Policies

    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 please call 4-1247 or 4-1234 or contact the department at lib-ill@rowland.umsmed.edu.  For instructions on how to request articles directly from Rowland databases, please visit   this tutorial or contact us at 4-1234.
