Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service that lets the ULM Library borrow materials from other libraries. It may take a week or more to get your materials, so do plan ahead. Sometimes other libraries require payment for certain materials, but we will ask you first. Enhanced security measures now require that all patrons change their passwords periodically. When you log into the system, you may be prompted to change your password.

If you need further assistance or have problems with your ILLiad account ask at the Reference Desk on the first floor. The ILL Librarian, Melinda Matthews, can be reached at matthews@ulm.edu or by phone at (318) 342-1067. The ULM Library's ILL service is not available to courtesy card users not currently affiliated with ULM.
