How do I borrow materials from other libraries?
If you want an article, book, or other item that isn't available at the Kathryn A. Martin Library, you can request it through interlibrary loan in the catalog. Library staff will try to obtain the item through other University of Minnesota libraries and from libraries outside the UMN system.
Library guests are welcome to ask the circulation desk staff for help requesting items from University of Minnesota libraries.
For more information, check the interlibrary loan page or call the circulation desk directly at 218-726-6120.
