    Tip for UK Students

    If you are a UK student there are a number of Research Guides created specifically for you and organized by subject. There are also guides tailored for individual courses.


      Library Services available to Community Patrons

      Non-UK patrons may get a Community Borrower's card at any of the UK libraries if they are 18 years of age and show either a valid Kentucky driver's license, a valid Kentucky non-driver's ID card, an active student or faculty/staff ID from an approved reciprocal college, or a UK alumni card.

        Interlibrary Loan

        Materials located in UK Libraries may be requested though your local library's Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service.  Through that service you may request the loan of an item(s) from circulating collections, or copies/scans of journal articles, etc.  UK’s ILL Lending policies may be given to your local library staff for information on borrowing material through this process.
