Please use these forms to request materials which are not owned or electronically accessible by the JFKU Libraries.

Contact a librarian if you are not certain about access.

Journal articles and book chapters are supplied as photocopies, which you may retain.

Journal articles requested through InterLibrary Loan will be available for pickup at the library of the JFKU campus where you are enrolled. Alternatively, you may request your article be sent to you via postal mail.

Interlibrary loan books will not be shipped to the borrower, but must be picked up in person.

Distance students are encouraged to use their local libraries or free e-books on the web to obtain books not owned by the JFKU Libraries.

Please request renewals 1 week in advance, as it will take time for us to get approval from the lending library.

Overdue interlibrary loan items incur a $1 per day fine plus any additional fine charged by the lending library.
