Traditional library services are provided to Wor-Wic students by SU

System of Maryland with no limits on the number of items (request from USMAI online
catalog), use of the library facility and basic equipment, and reference assistance.
Present a current Wor-Wic identification card at Blackwell’s circulation desk to
obtain a SU library card. Wor-Wic students may also obtain a special borrower’s
card at the UMES Frederick Douglass Library and use their facility.
Materials from other libraries outside the University System of Maryland can be
obtained through Interlibrary Loan, by completing an online form on Blackwell Library’s
website. Go to http://www.salisbury.edu/library, click on Interlibrary Loan, then
select request form. Students and staff will be charged a $15.00 SU Services fee
per each filled request and any additional charges by lending libraries. Students
may also request materials through Marina, the public library’s ILL system in Maryland.
