The library catalog is shared with 16 other libraries in University System of Maryland and Affiliated Institutions (USMAI) consortium, and items from these libraries can be requested online and delivered to LNDL. View our Other Libraries page for a list of USMAI libraries, and visit our USMAI Borrowing page for more information about how to request materials.  

If you are unable to find a particular book listed in the library catalog, you can request it for free through Interlibrary Loan (ILL)Books and other physical items will take about a week to arrive; you will be notified via email when items are ready for pickup. Loan periods and renewals vary according to the lending libraries.

Electronic Books

Electronic books owned by the Loyola/Notre Dame Library can be accessed at any time from any location. If you are accessing an e-book from off-campus, you will need to use your Loyola or Notre Dame credentials to log in.
