Faculty Services

Find materials

  • Borrowing Privileges - Find information regarding borrowing and renewing library materials as well as loan periods.
  • Connect from Off-Campus - You should usually just need your U of M Internet ID and password. Remember to click the “Find it” button or link from a database. If you have trouble accessing materials from off campus, please contact the library at umclib@crk.umn.edu or call 218-281-8399. 
  • Get-It - Request materials from another University of Minnesota library. Just sign into the library catalog, search for an item under the U of M All Campuses Catalog, click on the title, and choose Get It (when the option appears). After retrieval, the item will either be held at your selected pickup location or mailed to the address you provided when placing the request. You will receive an email when it is ready for pickup or is mailed out to you. Physical items are eligible for Get It. If you are looking for an article, your best option is interlibrary loan.
