Borrowing from Smathers Libraries

Students can borrow materials from any of the libraries on campus. Materials must be obtained from the library where the material is held, however, materials can be returned to the Legal Information Center.

Borrowing from Other Florida Libraries

UBorrow is a program that allows you to quickly and easily place requests for materials held by other Florida university libraries. Due to cost savings and speed of delivery, UBorrow is preferable to interlibrary loan if the material is available. If you have searched the University of Florida Libraries catalog and determined that the item you seek is not held by any of the UF libraries, type your search into the box and select search Statewide Catalog. If you a signed in and the item is available at another Florida institution, a white UBorrow Request box will appear under How To Get It. Click that button to start the process. For pickup location, select "UF Legal Information Center." Click the "Send Request" button. Your request will be automatically processed and you will receive an email when the materials are ready to be picked up at the Legal Information Center Circulation Desk. 

If the item you are interested in is not available through UBorrow, we may be able to obtain it through interlibrary loan. (ILL) Please view the information on the ILL process below.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

If materials are not available through Smathers Libraries, you may place a request for the Legal Information Center to attempt to borrow the material from another library in the United States through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). You can also request articles, chapters, or pages from books through ILL.

To place an Interlibrary Loan request, please submit an Interlibrary Loan request at https://uflib.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/fub/logon.html.

Note that books may take anywhere from one to two weeks to arrive through ILL. Requests for scans from books or articles usually arrive electronically within one week.
