The Libraries Service Center (LSC) is in Laurel, MD and serves as the off-site shelving facility for the JHU libraries.
To get a book from LSC, click the "request" button in the online catalog.

If you're not affiliated with JHU, you can still request books to be delivered to the Service Desk, or journal articles to be scanned and e-mailed to you, by sending an e-mail to with the citation information.

Deliveries occur daily. Materials are normally available for use the following day, the exception being Special Collections materials.  It may take up to two business days for Special Collections materials housed at the LSC to be available for use.
