The Interlibrary Loan department supports the research of students, faculty, and staff by providing article delivery and short-term loans from other libraries.
Contact us to learn more, or explore the information below.
Whenever possible, interlibrary loans are a free service; the Library is a member of OCLC and Libraries Very Interested in Sharing (LVIS), which enables us to borrow on a reciprocal basis across the country. Please check to see if the item you are looking for is part of USJ's extensive collection of electronic and print resources. Please use the links above to check Encore for a book or Journal Finder for a journal. If the item is not available the librarians can assist you in determining if there is an open source (free) resource available and in that case there will be no charge. If the item is not available free of charge or in the collection and you still wish to have it obtained by the library, you will need to follow the procedure below.
This change will be effective August 15, 2018. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
Any articles you request are yours to keep. Books are generally loaned for three weeks. However, interlibrary loan is not meant to eliminate the purchasing of textbooks or to by-pass the Library's reserve book system. Loans of ILL materials are not for the entire semester.
The due date is clearly written in each book you request. Failure to return your interlibrary loan promptly results in a $1.00 per day fine. Overdue books can jeopardize USJ’s borrowing privileges with lending libraries, so please return your materials by the assigned due date.
Each lending library sets the due date according to its loan policies – usually three weeks. Renewals are generally granted for two weeks. However, no lending library will renew a book that is overdue.
