On Saturday March 21st, Governor Murphy issued a stay-at-home order for the state of New Jersey, which included the closure of all non-essential businesses, including libraries. At this time, access to our physical collections, including interlibrary loan, are unavailable. We are not able to access the library or send and receive any packages. We encourage all patrons to adhere to this stay-at-home order.

Interlibrary Loan

Due to the closure of our and many other libraries, we have temporarily suspended Interlibrary loan of physical materials.

Articles and book chapters may still be requested. Availability depends on the item being digitized, but we are trying multiple providers and ways to find resources.

Ebook borrowing is available on a very limited basis. This is dependent on licensing from the publisher, which is often does not allow for Interlibrary Loan. 

Thank you for your understanding.
