What should I do if the library does not have the book or article I need?
If the subject you are searching for is not health related, be sure to check the Mervyn H. Sterne library catalog. In some cases, the Sterne library may have the material even if the subject is health related. This is more likely to occur if the topic is a multidisciplinary area such as:
- biology: ecology, botany, zoology
- chemistry: general, inorganic, organic, and physical
- environmental health
- exercise physiology
- government documents
- health business
- health education
- materials science
- sociology or social work
Note: Effective September 1, 2015, interlibrary loan services through the UAB Libraries will be available to current UAB students, faculty, and staff only.
