Notice: We have been notified of a potential UBorrow outage of approximately 30 minutes between 12:00 am and 3:00 am, Saturday, April 26, 2014, while network maintenance is underway. We apologize for any inconvenience.
UBorrow enables current students, faculty and staff to search for and request books directly from 16 research institutions. When you quickly need items that are unavailable at the University of Minnesota Libraries or are not owned by the library, search UBorrow. At present, this service only applies to books, scores and selected media. Try UBorrow and if you can't find what you're looking for, submit a regular request through ILLiad or WorldCat.
Note: Materials not available through UBorrow may be requested via regular interlibrary loan. Just follow the blue "Request" link. If your search did not produce results and there is no "Request" link, that doesn't mean it's not available, sign in to ILLiad and submit a book request. These items will carry the loan period granted by the lending library, not the more generous UBorrow loan period and may take longer to arrive.
UBorrow is a service offered by the member institutions of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), which is comprised of the universities of the Big Ten Conference plus the University of Chicago. Materials from the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) may also be requested.
