Interlibrary Loan Request

Effective summer 2020, we are resuming borrowing physical books through Interlibrary Loan.  When they arrive, we will mail them to your home.  If you are a faculty/staff member, you may request the books be placed in your mailbox.  The library building remains closed at this time.  We also continue to request and email articles/book chapters to you.

Need a book or article that the library doesn’t have?  Use this Interlibrary Loan Request form to find out if we can borrow it from another library.  A book will be shipped to the Jessup Library free of charge, and articles are sent electronically.  Books typically arrive in 2-4 days, and articles may be available as quickly as 24 hours from the time we make the request.  If you need a book or article immediately, then try searching JMRL's catalog or UVA's catalog. (As a PVCC student, you can go to UVA's libraries and borrow books from them). 

Before submitting this form, please check QuickSearch, EBSCO, and the Journal Search to verify that the book or the full text article is not in this library. If you have any questions, please call 434.961.5308.

Our Interlibrary Loan policies:

  • You must be a PVCC student, faculty, or staff member to request items through Interlibrary Loan.
  • The request must be for college-related research (no personal requests allowed).
  • Request up to 6 articles and 3 books at one time.  Additional requests may not be made until the other items are delivered.
  • No requests for textbooks or any required texts for a course are allowed.
  • If a book is damaged or lost, the requestor is responsible for the fee charged by the lending library.
