UBorrow Information

UBorrow Service

What is UBorrow?

UBorrow is an interlibrary loan system between the State University Libraries.

Only physical books are available through UBorrow. E-Books and audio-visual materials are not available at this time.

Ordering Process

  • Login to your Library Account and use the State Catalog to look up books and initiate UBorrow request
  • To see if an item is available, select "Show All Locations" and look to see if there are copies whose status is "Available"
  • If the title you want is available, click the "UBorrow" button under that item and select your pick up location on the next page
  • If a title is unavailable, you will be taken to the ILLiad system where you can request the book through Interlibrary Loan
  • Do not try to select a certain library: the system will choose a library for you
  • Active requests can be viewed through your Library Account, and once an item arrives, you will receive an email notification
