Borrowing at the Legal Information Center Fall 2020

If you would like to borrow materials from the Legal Information Center, we encourage you to contact your library liaison who will pull the materials you request and put them in your faculty mailbox.

The search box below searches just the Legal Information Center holdings.

The Legal Information Center will consider requests for new materials to add to the library collection from faculty members if the materials fit within our collection parameters and budget. A form is available at in order to make such a request. We can also assist you with the purchase of books and media for your personal use by charging materials to your Personal Development Account (PDA).

Borrowing from Smathers Libraries Fall 2020

Smathers Libraries will open to UF Affiliates on August 28, 2020. For more information about obtaining books from other libraries on campus during the fall semester, please visit or ask your library liaison for details.

Uborrow Fall 2020

Due to current circumstances, UBorrow has been placed on hold. If you have UBorrow items currently checked out, please return them to the LIC book return located east of the LIC entrance.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Fall 2020

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

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.

We will attempt to obtain any item requested through ILL. However, due to current circumstances, ILL may take longer to facilitate or items may be unavailable as many libraries are not participating in ILL at this time.

Proxy Borrowing

You may set up proxy borrower privileges which will allow another person to check out books on your account and pick up materials requested from other libraries. To set this up, please complete the proxy borrower form at  After completion and verification of the proxy borrower form, you will be issued a proxy borrower card that you can provide to your proxy borrower. Please contact Access Services Manager Elisa O'Malley if you have any questions about the proxy borrower process.
