Materials Beyond Dana

Request an Article or Other Resource

If we don't have the article or book you need here, we can usually get it for you from another library or offsite storage. Just place a request and we'll get it for you as quickly as possible (usually within a couple of days).

Get it Yourself

If another library in the area has the book you need, it may be more convenient to visit that library than to wait for us to get it for you. Most libraries are happy to have unaffiliated users visit and use their materials locally (including photocopying an article or chapter). UVM has special relationships with St. Michael's and Champlain Colleges to allow students and faculty to check out books.

Note: Before visiting another library, we suggest you contact them directly to check their current policies. In the wake of COVID, many institutions may be closed to unaffiliated users or have special requirements.

Identifying Where a Book Can Be Found

  • WorldCat

    World's largest bibliographic database; check here for other libraries that own materials we don't have.

  • NLM Catalog

    Search the collections of the United States National Library of Medicine
