Loansome Doc System to Retire on July 1, 2019

On July 1, 2019, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) will retire the Loansome Doc system due to declining use. As this date approaches, features and functionality are dwindling.

Existing Loansome Doc patrons may continue utilizing Savitt Medical Library by transitioning to an Illiad account. Please contact Jenny Costa to ensure your account's transition.

Borrower Responsibilities

Please return books obtained via ILLiad on or before the date due.  Books borrowed through ILL are the property of the lending library, not the Savitt Medical Library. Borrowers are responsible for any ILL items that are lost or damaged, and must pay any and all replacement & processing costs, as determined by the lending library.  If fines are unpaid, the borrower may be blocked from using ILLiad and from checking out items from the UNR libraries. A  hold may also be applied to your UNR account at the Cashier's Office that would prevent you from registering for classes or receiving your transcript until the fines have been paid.
