About Interlibrary Loan & Course Reserves

We provide Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and Course Reserves services. 

ILL enables JMU students, faculty, and staff to request materials that are not available in any JMU Libraries collections. We acquire those materials from other libraries and document delivery vendors. We also provide these additional services:

  • Scan and Deliver: We scan articles and book chapters from the JMU Libraries print and microform collections and deliver the scanned materials electronically.
  • Distance Learners: We send ILL and JMU Libraries materials to eligible distance learners.

Course Reserves allows JMU faculty members to place high-use course materials on reserve for students to check out with shortened loan periods.
