There are two ways:

On the library home page, under REQUEST MATERIALS, choose Interlibrary Loan.

  • Log in, choose the kind of item that you want (for example, book, book chapter, article), and fill in the information
  • You will get an e-mail when your item is available

Also on the library home page under REQUEST MATERIALS is Borrow Direct.

  • This service is for borrowing books ONLY
  • Eligible JHU students, faculty and staff may register for on-site borrowing privileges at:

Brown University
University of Chicago
Columbia University
Cornell University
Dartmouth College
Duke University
Harvard University
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
University of Pennsylvania
Princeton University
Yale University 

To do this, you must show your JHU ID and login to your BorrowDirect account. Once you are authenticated, you will be issued a library card.

Borrowing privileges vary by institution.  Please review individual library polices prior to your visit.  Borrowed items may be returned at either the lending library or JHU.
