Books not at UWF - UBorrow

UBorrow allows you to request print books directly from Florida’s state universities and colleges.  This unmediated borrowing service increases your access to the book collections of these institutions usually delivers more quickly than standard Interlibrary Loan.

When searching in UWF library catalog, click on the blue    icon in the top right corner.  Alternatively, you can search Mango (the union catalog) directly.  To request books, click on the UBorrow icon under the item, enter your *full, 13-digit* Nautilus card number and password, and select the pick-up location.  You will receive an email when the book arrives and is ready for pick-up at the library's Information Desk.

The loan period for UBorrow items is 45 days from the time the item arrives on campus, and you may request one 30-day renewal.  UBorrow renewals are placed exactly like UWF book renewals - through Renew My Books or the Renewals/Library Account link in the library catalog. UBorrow renewals must be placed before the due date, and you will receive an email notification with the new due date or request denial. UBorrow books should be returned to the Information desk.

Notes and Reminders:

  • e-books and other media are not available through UBorrow
  • do not remove the UBorrow paperwork attached to the book(s)
  • you will be fined for all overdue, lost, and damaged UBorrow loans

Books not at UWF - ILL

If you need a book that is not available at UWF, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan.  Most books are received in about 2 weeks, and you will notified when they are available for you to pick up at the Reference desk.

To identify books on your topic that UWF doesn't own, try searching WorldCat, a catalog of materials at universities, community colleges, public libraries, and other library agencies throughout the United States and internationally.

For more information, watch this brief InterLibrary Loan video.
