Introduction to UBorrow

 UBorrow is an exciting new service that enables FSU library patrons to request materials from any one of the 37 participating state university library branches throughout Florida. The turnaround time is faster than interlibrary loan and it is also a way of borrowing books that are currently checked out and not available from FSU. Items will be delivered to any one of the FSU Libraries for you to pickup. For details on how distance Learners can also take advantage of UBorrow see the Goldstein's LibGuide for Distance Learners.

For more information check out the UBorrow FAQ from University Libraries.

How to use UBorrow:

1. Search the FSU Catalog for your desired title. On the search results page check to see if the title is available from the FSU Libraries.
