What is Get it? How do I request materials that aren't available on this campus?


UMD students, faculty, and staff can request materials from the Martin Library or other participating University of Minnesota libraries with the click of a mouse. Get It provides system-wide paging and lending of library materials from all of the larger Twin Cities University Libraries as well as from UMD, UM Crookston, and UM Morris.

When you are searching in our library catalog and find a title that you want for research, you can request it by clicking on the Get It link. (NOTE: You must log in to use Get It.) We will retrieve the title and hold it for you at the Circulation desk save shelf. Faculty and staff with on-campus addresses may choose "office delivery" as the pickup location to request mail delivery of Get It materials. 

If the item you need is not available at a University of Minnesota library, you can request it through interlibrary loan.
