Important Interlibrary Loan (ILL) updates

Posted on: March 24, 2020

Libraries around the world are no longer shipping books to each other due to the pandemic, so JMU Libraries’ ILL service is not able to request books or other loan materials for you from other libraries until further notice.

While ILL staff are working remotely, we are able to process requests for articles and book chapters from other institutions for some materials held in electronic format. We will attempt to obtain these sources. However, please note that fulfillment may be slower or not possible at this time. We appreciate your understanding.

ILL overdue notices were suspended when JMU courses moved online. 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 before you leave campus, feel free to place those in any of the JMU Libraries book drop locations.

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

Stay tuned for further details about ILL service adjustments.
