Borrowing JKM Library Items

Borrowing JKM Library Items

12/11/2020 Update: Because the JKM Library is closed, you cannot borrow physical items at this time. You can place holds on items, though, and we will pull them for you when we reopen on Monday, January 18th (assuming there are no additional changes!).

  • We strongly encourage you to place a hold on the items you would like to check out from the JKM Library:
    • Simply use the "place hold" feature in our library catalog. Login with your Chatham username and password.
    • We will pull the items for you and have them ready for you within 3 business days
  • If you pull the items from the shelves yourself, please note that we will ask you to hold up the items so we can scan the barcodes through the plexiglass that surrounds our circulation desk.
  • Returned items will be quarantined for 3 days before being checked in. No fines will accumulate during this time.

Borrowing From Other Libraries

Borrowing From Other Libraries

  • E-ZBorrow: Unavailable
    • Because the library is closed, E-ZBorrow borrowing is turned off for all members of the Chatham community.
  • ILLIAD: Digital Items Only!
    • Due to the library closure, Chatham faculty, staff, and graduate students are only able to borrow digital items at this time.
    • To expedite your request, be sure to include the ISSN or ISBN (for book chapters) in the request form
    • Sign into your ILLiad account on our Borrow from Other Libraries page

The tentative plan is to turn physical borrowing through E-ZBorrow and ILLiad back on starting Monday, January 11th so that you can place requests to pick up as early as Monday, January 18th when our building reopens. Stay tuned!
