Borrowing Policies

Review the library's borrowing policies for staff here.

Resources not held by the library

If you need resources that are not held by the library, there are multiple ways to request the material:

  • E-ZBorrow - This service is only for book requests. E-ZBorrow allows you to directly search and request books from over 50 academic libraries in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and West Virginia. If a book you need is not held by the JKM Library, try using E-ZBorrow first; if it is not available in E-ZBorrow, try ILLiad.

  • ILLiad  - This service is for requesting books, journal articles, government documents, theses/dissertations, and audio visual material.  

Recommending Items

Staff may recommend that books and other materials be added to the Library's collection. Simply send your recommendations to your liaison librarian, or fill out a recommendation form.
