Borrow from the other UNE campus

Request any item held at the other UNE campus library. We deliver between campuses every business day. Items will be checked out to you when they arrive, so if you no longer need something you requested, please contact us to avoid late charges. You can return items to either campus library.

Use UNE Interlibrary Loan to request articles from print or microfilm journals held at the other campus.

Unavailable Items

Request any item that someone else has already borrowed.  When it is returned, we will check it out to you and email you to come pick it up at the library front desk.

You can also borrow from another library.

Interlibrary Loan

If you need something to which we don’t provide access, we can get it for you from another library.

You can also go in person go to any Maine Reciprocal Borrowing Program  or Greater Portland Alliance of Colleges and Universities (GPACU) library and borrow using your UNE ID card.
