Interlibrary Loan

If the Music Library does not have an item that you need, you can request it through our free Interlibrary Loan service, which allows us to borrow items from libraries around the world on your behalf. 

Overdue Materials & Fines

When a patron has overdue materials, circulation privileges are automatically blocked at all libraries within the University system, replacement fees are assessed, and a hold is placed on the patron's UofL Bursar account. These blocks remain in effect until the overdue materials are returned or replacement costs are paid.

Discover. Create. Succeed.
