Faculty, staff and students at UMB and affiliated institutions have to search the library’s available catalogues, and find materials on their own. The loan period is normally 4 weeks, journals 1 week. Remember to take along your library card. Any material being stored at one of UMB’s departments has to be borrowed at the department directly. For more information about borrowing, please refer to our circulation policies.

How to order materials via BIBSYS
After finding a reference in the BIBSYS database, you usually have the possibility to order the loan and/or copies of articles, depending on whether it refers to a book, journals, proceedings, etc. If you wish to order an article, you have to search for the book or journal in which the article is published.
