JMU Carrier Library fountain

As we prepare for the Carrier Library renovation and expansion, JMU Libraries Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is committed to maintaining availability and equitable access to our service. Please note the following schedule and plan your research needs accordingly:

Requesting loans from other libraries:

Beginning Monday, April 24, 2023 when the ILL office and staff are relocated, you may experience longer turnaround time for loan requests from other institutions.

Requesting articles from other libraries:

There will be no disruption to articles being borrowed from other institutions.

Scan & Deliver from JMU Libraries:

Due to collection moves, Scan & Deliver may experience longer than 48-hour turnaround.


  • Although Carrier & Rose Libraries will be closed from May 12 -21, 2023, you may continue to submit requests for physical and electronic materials through your ILL account
  • 24/7 access to any electronic delivery articles that you have received will not change
