Interlibrary Loan

The Library makes every attempt to locate and borrow materials for study, research, or teaching. Only affiliated users are eligible for this service. This service is free of charge for University of Florida personnel. There is a base charge of $14.00 for non-UF library affiliates. The normal turn around time for interlibrary loan articles is 1-3 days and 1-2 weeks for books. Rush requests for patient care or other emergency situations may be transmitted via fax for a $5.00 surcharge. To facilitate the request process, affiliated users may complete a Literature Search request form. The form may also be obtained from the Reference/Circulation Desk. Please note that books borrowed from other libraries must be returned promptly, in accordance to the lending library’s required due date; no renewals are feasible on interlibrary loan materials. Fines of $1.00 per day (no maximum) will be assessed for overdue interlibrary loan materials.
