Worldcat at UMass Boston provides a quick way to order books and other physical materials (CDs, DVDs, anything that can be physically mailed to us) from our partner libraries in the Boston Library Consortium and other libraries around the world.

The Healey Library building is closed until further notice. Thus, at this time, physical interlibrary loan book borrowing is currently unavailable. However, most library resources (articles, e-books, databases, streaming video) are available online, and library services continue remotely. 

Begin by searching WorldCat for a book or an article under keyword, title, or author in the basic search box. Once you have found the item you're looking for within your results, click on the title.

Once you have selected an item in WorldCat, if Healey Library doesn't have your item, click on Request Item through Interlibrary Loan. The request will automatically be transferred to your Illiad InterLibrary Loan account so that we may request from libraries around the state and country if necessary.

The InterLibrary Loan Logon page will open. Sign in with your last name (all lower case) and your Healey Library barcode number to place your request.
