Reading Pop Culture: College Writing 1010.286



When you search the library catalog, you will be simultaneously searching
         ► UMass Lowell material
         ► The collections of our partner libraries in the Boston Library Consortium (BLC)

         ► libraries across the country

Material that you can borrow immediately from the UMass Lowell Libraries will appear at the top of the list.

Items in BLC libraries will appear after our own material. Materials in other libraries in Massachusetts are listed next, followed by libraries across the country and beyond.  You will be able to see which group holds an item in the first level of results. It will appear in green text as “Libraries that own this item.”

Register for Interlibrary Loan

You must be logged in to the UML library to request items from other libraries. When an item you want appears in the list of your search results but is not in the UML collection, click on the blue box that says "Request Item through Interlibrary Loan." You will be prompted to log into ILLiad. First time ILLiad users will be asked to register for the service by providing contact information and their UMass Lowell ID number. Choose a username and password to log onto the system. The best username is your UMS number and you are strongly encouraged to use that. When you log into ILLiad from the catalog, you will see the request form already filled in with the item information. 

The new user log- in page is pictured below.
