Computer Use: Computers are available in the library for your use. A GatorLink account is required for login. Computers are equipped with Office 2007, Media Player and Acrobat Reader.

Interlibrary Loan and Request-A-Copy : The library makes every attempt to locate and borrow materials for study, research, or teaching. The purpose of Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is to obtain, upon request by the patron, materials not available in the user’s local [i.e. Borland] library.The normal turnaround time for interlibrary loans is 2-5 work days.

Request-A-Copy is a photocopy service of Borland Library material for affiliates who, due to time constraints, are not able to photocopy material themselves.

To submit a request for either service, please fill out the Interlibrary Loan and Request-A-Copy form.  

Photocopying: One combo printing/photocopying machine is available in the library. This service is free of charge, but it is limited to library materials only. Please limit your copying to 50 pages or less.

Reference Services: Library staff can support your clinical, research and teaching needs by locating factual information related to disease, therapy or procedures. Look for the database search request form under Quick Links. Usual turnaround time for search requests is 1-3 days.
