Specifically, we are going to have to reconfigure our interlibrary loan (ILL) system to work with the new system. We will also have to do some testing and training once that process is complete.

During this time you will not be able to place ILL requests as you normally would. We ask that you use this form to place urgent requests during this time. You can also e-mail ucmill@ucmerced.edu if you have any questions.
