Important Interlibrary Loan (ILL) updates

Posted on: July 6, 2020

Libraries around the world are not shipping books to each other due to COVID-19, so JMU Libraries’ ILL service is not able to request books or other physical materials for you from other libraries until further notice.

ILL staff are able to process requests for articles and book chapters from other institutions. We will attempt to obtain these sources in digital/electronic format. However, please note that fulfillment may be slower or not possible at this time.

ILL overdue notices were suspended in March 2020. We will deal with overdue items in collaboration with our ILL colleagues at a later date. If you have the ability to return ILL items, feel free to place them in any of the JMU Libraries’ book drops on campus.

At this time we have suspended the Scan & Deliver service for items held in the JMU Libraries’ collections.

Please check back here for further details about ILL service adjustments.
