There are two crucial online entry points for using all of what the library can offer. They are
►The library itself; if you are off campus you will need to put in your UML email and password
► Interlibrary Loan log-in. Interlibrary Loan, (or ILLIAD), is a service of the library which is an essential part of using the databases.
The first requires only your UML email address and password. The second requires you to create an additional account, which you can do from the page linked here.
For information about how to use Interlibrary Loan, see this guide.
Boston Library Consortium (BLC) Cards are used to gain access and to borrow material directly from libraries in the BLC. UMass Lowell faculty, staff and students with library accounts in good standing may register for BLC cards at the circulation desks of Lydon and O’Leary Libraries. A current UML ID is required to obtain a BLC card.
The following are the participating libraries in the BLC Consortium Card Program. Please click the name of the library for more information.
