Faculty and Staff ILL Information

Faculty and staff at UMass Boston are able to  request items that are available in the Healey Library collections in addition to ordering items not available to you through Healey.

  • Please submit all requests through your ILLiad account. 
  • Physical items (books, DVDs, etc.) will be held for you at the Healey Library circulation desk. You will be notified via email when they are available for pick-up.
  • Article requests will be delivered to your ILLiad account. 
  • We may provide you with links to electronic items if the files are too large to upload.
  • The ILL office will make every attempt to deliver such items to you within 3-4 business days.

In an effort to maintain good relations with our lending libraries and encourage prompt return of materials, faculty and staff will be to adhere to due dates for items not supplied by Healey Library.  Additionally, we cannot waive replacement fees for items that are deemed to be lost or extremely overdue by the owning library.  Be sure to read information regarding renewals carefully.

Answers regarding other interlibrary loan polices and procedures may be found by using the other tabs at the top of this page.  You may also contact the Interlibrary Loan office using the contact information in the box  to the left.
