On July 1, 2019, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) will retire the Loansome Doc system. The system is closing due to a continued decrease in use that peaked in 2002. Therefore, Rowland is no longer accepting Loansome Doc registrations. Updates and next steps for our unaffiliated users will be posted as available.
Loansome Doc enables PubMed users to order documents found in MEDLINE. Articles can be ordered from a list of citations retrieved from PubMed.

Interlibrary loan services are available for UMMC affiliates.
For non-affiliated users, the library only fills requests for items that are in our holdings. For all other resources, non-affiliated users are encouraged to utilize other Loansome Doc providers or commercial document delivery services. It is the responsibility of non-affiliate users to investigate these services.
Once registered with us:
Non-affiliates should deselect the citations that are not in Rowland's holdings before continuing to delivery options at the bottom of the page. The library does not provide interlibrary loan services for non-affiliates.
Click Proceed to Delivery Options.
Once an order is submitted, requests are quickly and automatically sent to your selected library. Articles are delivered as PDF email attachments. Rowland does not accept RUSH requests via Loansome Doc.
You may view the status of your Loansome Doc orders immediately after an order is sent. The Status page in your account displays the request number, request date, the status of the order, status date, author(s), title of the article, citation, and the PMID (PubMed ID number).
