Distance FAQ

I'm not good at searching or finding the full-text of an article. Can someone help me?\

If you have any questions or need help using our resources, please contact the Reference Desk at askus@unmc.edu, 402-559-6221, or 866-800-5209 (toll-free). We can even schedule a time with you to walk through our resources. You can also check out various library guides that have been created to help you with your searching.

The library doesn't have an article I need, how do I get it and how long will it take?

You can order articles via interlibrary loan. Students receive their first 50 requests per year (July-June) free of charge. The average turnaround time is two business days and the articles will be available to you electronically. (Learn more)

The library has a journal article in its print collection. How do I get a copy of that?

Order the article as you would an interlibrary loan. We will scan and send the article to you electronically, just as an interlibrary loan. This service is free and does not count toward your 50 requests. Turnaround time is the same or next business day.

Ok, so there is a book in the library's collection. Can you send it to me?

Certainly! Order the book via the interlibrary loan forms and we will mail it to you. We ship First Class, so please allow for mailing time. Return postage and insurance will be your responsibility. This service is free and does not count towards your 50 requests.

I need a book and it isn't in your collection. What about that?

Unfortunately, we cannot obtain a book from another library and then mail it out to you. We ask that you use your local library to obtain the item through interlibrary loan. We do apologize for this inconvenience.
