UConn staff, students and faculty are encouraged to make their Loan request via WorldCat (> for books outside of the UConn system. For books within the UConn Library system, please continue to use the Inter Campus Express (ICE) online form. Look for the “request ice” tab in the HOMER, library catalog. You will need your NetID to login.


What is the BLC?
The Virtual Catalog provides a single, searchable catalog of books owned by participating libraries of the Boston Library Consortium. Qualified patrons of these libraries may directly request material from the other participants. UConn students, faculty and staff (including retirees) may search and request material from 19 libraries.
