Loansome Doc, is an interlibrary loan (ILL) service provided through the U.S. government health and medicine database, PubMed.

In Wyoming, the library is University of Wyoming Libraries in Laramie. The Campbell County Health Department is also a source of information.

There is no cost for UW students, faculty, or staff to use Loansome Doc. Wyoming healthcare providers are charged a $10 fee per request (one article). Non-Wyoming healthcare professionals and non-healthcare users of this service are charged $20.

If you are not in Wyoming, contact the designated medical resource library for your state. This library will be an academic library that is a member of the National Networks of Libraries of Medicine. (NN/LM)
