Access to UCLA Collections
UCLA Libraries are open to the public.
Print and microform collections may be viewed on-site by visitors.
- Borrowing requires a UCLA Library card.
- Access to some collections requires a free Access Only card.
Remote access to print and microform collections may be available in a number of ways:
- Interlibrary loan: Your local library can borrow UCLA materials and loan them to you. Check with your local library for interlibrary loan service availability, procedures, and costs.
- UCLA Document Delivery: A cost-recovery service which will scan journal articles and mail them to you. (The Library cannot provide scanned copies of entire books or journals.)
- Special Collections materials: See Special Collections Reproductions for all requests concerning collections in Library Special Collections.
Online collections are available to all users while physically on-campus.
- Off-campus access to online collections is only available to current UCLA students, faculty, and staff.
