About Access & Delivery

Access & Delivery helps JMU Patrons and other Library departments by delivering materials between locations, through campus mail for faculty, and maintaining the condition of our “stacks” through routine shelving, tidying up, and projects such as relocating collections.  We also help with patron accounts, fines, and the software used to place requests online and manage check outs at our desks.  You can find more details about delivery and policies at our Borrow and Renew website or by emailing
