Information for Borrowing Libraries

Beginning in February 2008, libraries that send requests to UMBC via mail or fax will be asked to register in our new Borrowing Libraries ILLiad system. Thereafter they will be able to request items through their ILLiad account, which will streamline the process. Please click on ILLiad Login to begin.
