What if the Library does not own the book or article that I want?


  • Books, journal articles, journals, microforms, media items such as DVDs and

          CDs, and many other items.

  • If items are locally owned and available, they are

          not eligible for ILL.

  • Materials available on reserve are also not eligible.

*Requesters should note that it is sometimes difficult to obtain physical copies

of newer journals, rare books, best sellers, and new fiction.


To make a request: 

  • Search for the title in UC Library Search or a database, or select the ILL Request tab in the top header in UC Library Search to open the form
  • Use the Get it at UC link or look under the Get It header to complete the ILL Request Form. 
  • If you need assistance, please email ucmill@ucmerced.edu
