Fogler Library Interlibrary Loan service among fastest in the United States

The nonprofit global library cooperative OCLC has ranked the University of Maine’s Raymond H. Fogler Library interlibrary loan service among the fastest in the nation. 

OCLC recognized Fogler Library as among the fastest 10% of libraries nationwide for filling interlibrary loan (ILL) requests. In the past year, Fogler Library has filled ILL requests for digital items in less than eight hours on average.

With this designation, Fogler Library can send ILL requests for UMaine patrons directly to other libraries in the top 10%. As a result, UMaine students, faculty and staff may receive digital items through ILL more quickly.
