Borrowing through Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad)
If a journal article, book, or other material is unavailable at the Lamar Soutter Library, UMass Chan Medical School faculty, staff, and students and UMass Memorial Health Care (UMMHC) staff can borrow it from other collections using InterLibrary Loan (ILL).
NOTE: First time accessing the interlibrary loan system? Click first time users and enter you library barcode number as your username. You will be prompted to create a password.
Current UMMS students (SOM, GSN, GSBS), faculty, staff, fellows, residents, post-docs, and UMMHC clinical staff can use Interlibrary loan, including Commonwealth Medicine and NIH Summer research fellows.
Patrons can borrow items not available in the library collection, including books and articles. Please note, bound journals and periodicals do not typically circulate, and we will not be able to get them for you. Request single articles or book chapters.
