The University Libraries are committed to serving all of our students. This was true before COVID-19 and remains true during the UofM’s transition to online instruction. As always, we are ready to help with your research needs, and we are continually brainstorming innovative ways of making library resources more accessible during this time. We appreciate your patience as we work toward solutions that serve the best interests of our entire campus community.
This LibGuide provides recommendations for modified access to Library assistance and research materials for the duration of the Summer 2020 semester.

Due to COVID-19, ASERL has decided to stop shipment of physical Interlibrary loan (ILL) transactions via the Lanter courier. Accordingly, University Libraries will also deflect all requests for physical loans. University of Memphis patrons should still request all desired materials via ILL and the office will work to fulfill them digitally. As the name implies, ILL depends on other libraries in the fulfillment of requests. Due to library closures worldwide, we anticipate delays in providing resources to our community. We appreciate your patience.
