First Time Registration for UConn Health Interlibrary Loan Service for Business, Unaffiliated Health Professional, or Library

To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must first identify yourself to the library's Interlibrary Loan system. You will receive a welcome email from the library with more information. After your account is created and you are notified by the library, you may come back and log on to create requests.

Registration has four purposes:

  • Entering your personal and business information into the system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.
  • Having your email and regular mail addresses on file with Interlibrary Loan enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when your request arrives in the library.
  • By using this new account, you will have secure access to information about your requests. You will also be able to review the list of items you have requested in the past.
  • You will be notified when materials are ready via your email address. Come here to logon and retrieve your articles. Books will be held at the Information Desk in the library.

CHARGES: Basic charges range from $20-$25 per article or book loan, depending on business model (non-profit/for profit). AV loans are $20-$25 depending on business model (non-profit/for profit).
