Getting Items from Other Libraries


Some of the books and journals listed in the library databases are not owned by Fogler Library. To obtain these materials you can

  • use a library catalog request function (books, some CDs and DVDs)
  • request an interlibrary loan or "ILL" (books, journal articles, and other materials)
  • visit another library and read or copy materials.

Most items requested through the catalog or ILL arrive at Fogler Library within 2 weeks.

Journal Articles

  • Interlibrary Loan (also available via Article Linker Article Linker icon )
    • Get PDF copies of articles from other libraries delivered to your e-mail account.
    • Get paper copies of articles mailed to Fogler Library. Pick up the copies at the Reserve Desk.
  • Don't mind a short drive for an article? Use the MaineCat catalog or Maine Serials List to identify nearby libraries that own the journal you need. Search for the title of the journal or "Source" (do not search for the title of the article).
