UAB Libraries Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Many libraries suspend ILL Borrowing and Document Delivery services during the holidays, making it difficult for us to fill UAB patrons’ requests.

Sterne Library will suspend ILL services for borrowing and document delivery between Saturday, December 15, 2018 and Tuesday, January 1, 2019.

Toys for Tots logo.

At UAB Libraries, we are again holding our Toys for Fines holiday charity drive to bring smiles to children who may not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season. Library users with overdue fines (current or prior) can have up to $20 waived when they donate a new, unwrapped toy for a child (infant through 12 years of age) to the Toys for Tots drive. These contributions will support UAB’s 25th Annual Holiday Toy Drive in conjunction with Toys for Tots to benefit local children.

Building news.

UAB is implementing a building safety plan that will promote greater control over access to campus facilities and employ additional technologies to enhance security for faculty, staff and students. As a result, UAB Libraries (Lister Hill Library and Mervyn H. Sterne Library) will both transition to card access for UAB faculty, staff, and students, including HSF employees.

Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine opened book.

The 20th edition of Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine has just been published by McGraw-Hill and is currently available through the UAB Libraries.
