WRNMMC Article Request

Who can use the DML's Interlibrary Loan Service?
Patrons affiliated with WRNMMC may request medical articles and books that are not available via the DML's collection.

How can I submit an interlibrary loan request?

  • Use the "Ask the DML" link to the right!
  • Email the DML interlibrary loan specialist, Clinton Coates, or call him at 301-400-3042.
  • Submit your article requests through Loansome Doc.

What is Loansome Doc?
Loansome Doc is a system that allows you to submit article requests directly from PubMed. Simply conduct your PubMed search. If Darnall Medical Library has the article you want, you will see a purple "Locate @ Darnall" icon. If the library does not have the article, you can order a copy of it through Loansome Doc by going to "Send To -->Order."

Loansome Doc is convenient, because it allows you to submit multiple requests at one time and to track the status of your requests. Plus the library that fills your request typically emails the article to you directly.

How do I register for Loansome Doc?
Go to the registration page and click "Sign Up!".  Click on the "skip this step" link. The library's LIBID is MDUNMC. Complete the rest of the form. Note: You must use your military email when registering.

Watch this demo on ordering articles through Loansome Doc.
