Dana Library will continue indefinitely the “no fee” policy for UVM faculty, staff and students, and Fletcher Allen employees needing to borrow journal articles and books from other libraries (Interlibrary Loan). Since the elimination of fees last September, health science students, faculty researchers and clinicians have taken advantage of their ability to obtain information resources that the Library does not own or subscribe to via ILL and have requested over 1400 journal articles.
It’s easy to request an article or other publication. First, determine that the Libraries’ do not have the book or journal you need. Look in the Title List of all UVM Electronic Journals (A-Z) on the Dana/UVM Libraries Website. Search for the title in the Libraries online catalog (Voyager) too. If you can’t find it either place, fill out the ILL request form at http://library.uvm.edu/services/ill/index.html as fully as you can and submit it. Usually the request can be filled in less than two days. Inter-Library Borrowing Professional Marie McGarry said, “There is a lot of satisfaction to providing information needed for clinical research and education. I am happy to respond to requests from all our patrons.”
