Interlibrary Loan and UBorrow

What are Interlibrary Loan and UBorrow?

Back to top

These two services are just more ways you can get material delivered from other libraries. Interlibrary loan has access to thousands of different libraries across the country, with requests from international libraries on occasion, while UBorrow is a similar service just for Florida’s state university and college systems.

UBorrow allows you to request materials directly from participating libraries within Florida's state university and college systems. This unmediated borrowing service increases your access to the collections of the other universities and colleges in Florida and delivers more quickly than standard Interlibrary Loan.

Requesting materials through UBorrow

To locate items from other institutions, search FSU Libraries OneSearch or expand your search in the search bar to include “Statewide Catalog”. Items not available for loan at FSU Libraries will include a link to complete the UBorrow form, shown in the above video.
