New for Faculty:

ILL and UBorrow materials can now be delivered to campus departments through Department Delivery!

Only UMD faculty and staff with 20742 zip codes are eligible for this delivery service. To use this service: 

  • New ILL users should choose Department Delivery as their preferred pick up location upon registering for an ILL Services account. 
  • Later this month all ILL users will be asked to verify their registration details, which will provide them with the opportunity to choose this new option. In the meantime, current ILL users who wish to use the new service immediately should email docdel@umd.edu
For more information, please visit the Libraries' Department Delivery page. Liaison librarians are encouraged to share this announcement with their faculty.
