The Ruth Lilly Medical Library previously partnered with the National Library of Medicine (“NLM”) to facilitate borrowing by non-Indiana University School of Medicine (“IUSM”) users. NLM has decided to no longer support this service: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/jf19/jf19_loansome_doc_retire.html
We are investigating our options to allow for borrowing by non-IUSM users and will update this page accordingly.
