Borrow Books Online from USMAI Libraries

Use this guide and see how easy (and free) it is to use your registered Bulldog ID Card to borrow books online from the Maryland USMAI libraries.

Request book for pickup

Read the chart: Which libraries have the book?  Is it on the shelf or is it checked out? (A due date is listed if it is checked out.)  Click Request if the book is not on the shelf at Bowie.*


*If the book is on the shelf at Bowie and therefore available for you to check out, then you will not be allowed to order it online from another USMAI library.

Select delivery location

Click on the drop-down menu for Pickup/Delivery Location and select the campus library (presumably Bowie) from which you want to pick up the book.  

Then, click on the "Next" button to submit the request.
