UAB Libraries will be closing their second instance of BrowZine, listed as University of Alabama at Birmingham, Health Sciences (instance ID 110) in the first week of February 2023. After this date, users who have account settings that need to be updated will be returned to the Choose Library screen, where they will need to select the remaining "University of Alabama at Birmingham" instance from the drop-down list.

Many university libraries suspend their Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services during the holidays, making it difficult for us to fill our patrons’ requests.

For that reason, UAB Libraries will suspend our ILL services for borrowing between Saturday, December 17, 2022 and Monday, January 2, 2023.

During that time, new requests cannot be accepted, but previously requested materials may be picked up as usual, and previously requested photocopies will be e-mailed as usual.

Patrons may check the status of their requests at any time. Some requested materials may not arrive until after the new year.

We will resume normal ILL operations on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

In conjunction with UAB’s 2022 Toy Drive, UAB Libraries are again holding our Toys for Fines holiday charity drive to bring smiles to children who may not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season. Library users with overdue fines (current or prior) can have up to $20 waived when they donate a new, unwrapped toy for a child (infant through 16 years of age) to the Toys for Tots drive.
