JWU librarians are happy to assist alumni in determining best options for obtaining desired information resources, and if available only at a HLELIN library are happy to makes special requests on behalf of alumni in good standing who are registered with JWU Alumni Services.
JWU Library will obtain no-cost, non-returnable items for alumni through interlibrary loan (ILL). Non-returnable items are generally limited to journal articles or book chapters which can be shared in digital format. Once obtained by JWU Library the loaned item is forwarded to alumni via e-mail. Such items do not need to be returned. JWU Library does not provide ILL to alumni for returnable items such as print books or DVDs. For more information, e-mail the interlibrary loan librarian
