Maryland Interlibrary Loan Organization (MILO) 

The Maryland Interlibrary Loan Organization is a cooperative network of public, academic, school and special libraries throughout the state of Maryland. Through close cooperation, customers are provided with access to the books, magazines, newspapers and other resources of over 700 libraries in the state. MILO also acts as a hub for six library delivery systems tying together public, academic and school libraries throughout the state.

The broad mission of MILO is to operate a resource-sharing network among Maryland Libraries. This provides access for the people of Maryland, via their local library system, to materials and services regardless of where they may live.

MILO's basic services to participating network libraries include interlibrary loan of print materials: books, pamphlets, maps, musical scores, government documents, etc., the provision of periodical and journal articles in photocopy, and the processing of information, reference and subject requests. Materials not available from the Enoch Pratt Free Library's collection are automatically referred to participating lenders in the network on behalf of the borrowing libraries.
