Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan is a service available to JMRL patrons for materials not owned by the library system.

  • There is no fee for items from the University of Virginia Library or electronic article requests. For other requests, there will be a $3.00 fee for each item requested on interlibrary loan. The $3 fee will be applied to your account even if the item is not picked up..
  • Patrons should first check the catalog by Title and Author to see if JMRL owns the item.
  • An unblocked JMRL library card is required.
  • Patrons should request, pick up and return the item to the same branch.
  • Materials less than one year old are not available for interlibrary loan.
  • The request limit is three items per patron. More items can be requested as previous requests are returned.
  • You will be notified by email, telephone or through postal mail when the item is received.
  • Patrons are responsible for the costs and fees for lost or damaged books as assessed by the lending library.
