My Library Accounts

The Library currently offers various service accounts.

My Account (Five College Libraries Borrowing)

For students faculty and staff, the UCard serves as a library card. Community borrowers, alumni borrowers and visiting scholars receive Library issued borrower cards. To see which books and other materials you have checked out, due dates, and the status of requests from the Five College System, or to renew items, go to the user login page.

Interlibrary Loan

UMass faculty, students and staff may set up Interlibrary Loan accounts in order to borrow books, videos, and other materials not available in the Five College system or to request copies of articles and book chapters. Use your library barcode to login to an existing account or to register for Interlibrary Loan or Document Delivery Services. To set up or login to your account, visit the Illiad Login page.

RefWorks Citation Manager

RefWorks is a citation management software program that collects, stores, and organizes citations from books, articles, Web sites, and other sources, and automatically converts citations into bibliographies formatted according to the desired style manual. All undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff may set up their own accounts. Visit the RefWorks login page to set up an account or to login.

UMass WorldCat

Check the status of items requested from Boston Library Consortium (BLC) libraries through UMass WorldCat.
If your request cannot be filled by a BLC library, the request will be tranferred to ILLiad automatically.
