HSLIC Service

Lending (ILL)

In support of resource sharing in the health sciences, the Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center (HSLIC) lends materials to other academic and clinical/corporate libraries. 

The University of New Mexico University Libraries has a separate interlibrary loan office. Please contact them directly regarding lending services from their holdings.

What We Do

The loan period for books is eight weeks. Renewals may be allowed on a case-by-case basis. We do not lend audiovisual material or scanned chapters/articles longer than 30 pages. 

Recall notices are sent via email and OCLC, if applicable. Recalled items should be returned as soon as possible via Priority Mail, UPS or FedEx, not by media or surface mail. Please return all materials with the HSLIC lending slip. Do not affix any type of adhesive labels to our material (included “removable” labels). We ship via UPS to destinations in the US.

Who Is This For?

HSLIC lends to academic libraries and health care organizations; we do not lend to public libraries or prison libraries. HSLIC also participates in the South Central Academic Medical Libraries Consortium (SCAMEL).

How Do I Get It?

HSLIC accepts lending requests via OCLC and DOCLINE.
