Patrons affiliated with WRNMMC may call the DML interlibrary loan specialist, Dina Treskunova, at 301-400-3042 for book requests. You can also email our Library Technicians team.
Do you just need a single chapter? Many lending libraries will scan the chapter and email it to you, which is much faster than waiting for them to get the book in the mail.
Impact of DML Closure on Print Interlibrary Loans
Unfortunately, the Darnall Medical Library is closed and we cannot request / loan print library materials. Even if we were open, most libraries are following recommendations from the CDC and are not loaning print materials via interlibrary loan (ILL) until further notice. Libraries are only providing ILL services from electronic resources.
Please check the Darnall Medical Library website (http://wrnmmc.libguides.com/) for status updates, and resubmit print requests when we reopen.
NLM Print Collection unavailable until further notice
Following Office of Personnel Management guidance on Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and recommendations from the CDC, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) print collection will be unavailable for interlibrary loan (ILL) fulfillment starting Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 8 am, until further notice. During this period NLM will continue to provide ILL services from electronic resources.
The "Request via Interlibrary Loan" Button currently isn't working consistently. We've had reports of issues in Chrome and Safari.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Who can use the DML's Interlibrary Loan Service?
