If JMU Libraries doesn’t have the material you need, we can borrow if from another library. Please check the JMU Library Catalog before submitting requests.

ILL can provide copies from journals, book chapters, and reports not owned by JMU. Allow at least 1-3 business days to obtain. Articles will be delivered electronically whenever possible. For items held by JMU Libraries, login to your ILL account and place an article request.  It will be routed to the correct staff to process. 

ILL borrows books, microforms, audiovisual items, theses/dissertations, and other materials not owned by JMU from lending libraries. Allow at least 4-8 business days for arrival. (Items that have to travel from further geographic locations take longer.) The lending library will determine the length of the loan period, indicate whether that period can be extended by a renewal, and/or stipulate any restrictions on the use of the material.
