Loansome Doc is the National Library of Medicine's document ordering service offered through PubMed. It allows you to tag the articles you want to order as you review citations from a search done on PubMED. You then select to have this information routed to the Dana Medical Library. If the Dana Medical Library owns the material you want, our staff will copy the article and send it to you. If we do not have the article in our collection, and you have indicated that Dana should obtain the article from another library, we will automatically transfer your request. The lending library will copy the article and send it back to Dana. We will then send the article to you via the indicated delivery option.
Please note that Loansome Doc only provides for the delivery of articles, not books. For book loans please contact us for more information, or contact your local library for interlibrary loan options.
An account requires an agreement for document delivery services with a partnering library, in this case, the Dana Medical Library at the University of Vermont. Fees will apply depending on your affiliation with the Dana Medical Library and the method needed to retrieve and deliver the article. Some articles may be available onsite, and require copying, faxing or email delivery (Dana Article Retrieval Service). Other articles may need to be borrowed for you from another lending library (ILL).
