HSLIC Service

Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery

Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) allows affiliated users to obtain research materials not available at HSLIC by requesting them from other libraries. These resources include journal articles, books, and conference proceedings. This service also provides delivery of HSLIC-owned books or scanned articles to other U.S. libraries.

Document Delivery provides free delivery of scanned articles from HSLIC's collections to HSC-affiliated patrons, and delivery of scanned articles to unaffiliated patrons for a fee.

Electronic copies of journal articles generally arrive within two days of the initial request.

Book loans generally take seven to ten working days to receive.   Most loan periods are between two and four weeks. Depending on the lending library, you may renew some books.

Who Is This For?

Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery are free to UNM’s HSC students, residents, fellows, faculty and staff. Non-HSC faculty, staff and students at UNM must request materials through the UNM University Libraries Interlibrary Loan Department .

New Mexico health care providers, government agencies, for-profit organizations and members of the public may use Document Delivery services for a fee. They may request copies of journal articles HSLIC owns but may not request books. A billing account must be set up in advance; contact the library for details.

Students enrolled in other academic institutions should contact their home institution's library.

How Do I Get It?

You may request document delivery or Interlibrary Loan materials using HSLIC's Online Form.

How Much Does It Cost?

Interlibrary loan and document delivery are free for HSC users.

Articles are $20 for non-UNM health care providers, government agencies and members of the public. Unaffiliated patrons are billed at the end of the month.

These fees are also posted on HSLIC's Interlibrary Loan Website. Some articles may not be obtainable due to cost and/or copyright restrictions.
