Books in the JKM Library

or visit the Catalog's Advanced Search.

If the JKM Library does not have the book you need:

  1. Order it through E-ZBorrow *
  2. If it's not available through E-ZBorrow, order it through ILLiad.

*Ignore all books in E-ZBorrow that have a book icon with an 'e' on them. These are e-books, which cannot be requested. Instead look for a print version (no 'e' on the book icon).
