Loansome Doc Services for Non-UA Affiliates

As a Resource Library within the National Library of Medicine's National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM)  the Arizona Health Sciences Library (AHSL) participates in Loansome Doc.  This is a fee-based document delivery service that we offer to healthcare professionals and community members not affiliated with the University of Arizona.

UA faculty, staff and students must use UAL Interlibrary Loan Services.

Article Delivery


To obtain article copies from AHSL, use Loansome Doc, which requires a simple registration process. You will be asked to select an ordering library--the library through which your requests will be processed. Select the University of Arizona as your ordering library if you agree to accept the following terms and conditions.


Below are the fees for one article delivered from AHSL or referred to another library.
