Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Interlibrary Services  is available only for e-resource requests such as PDFs of papers, articles, and chapters. E-books are often difficult to obtain but we will do our best to find one. Visit our FAQ to learn more.

Physical items, such as DVDs and print books, and scans of UConn-owned print materials are not available at this time. Please keep any physical materials you have currently checked out until further notice. We have extended all due dates and waived fines and fees for these items.
