I can't find a title in the library catalog. It seems UMD doesn't have the title that I need. How do I request materials using Get It or Interlibrary Loan?


While a large library with an extensive collection, the Kathryn A. Martin Library doesn't hold all of the world's materials. However, we can track down books, articles, and journals for you.

  • You can contact a librarian via AskUs! or stop in to consult with a Reference Librarian (second floor) for assistance with finding materials on the shelf or in digital formats.
  • UMD students, faculty, and staff can request materials from other University of Minnesota campus libraries using the Get It service. 
  • Log in to your interlibrary loan account to request materials not available within the University of Minnesota system.
