For the bookshelf seeds for the future by Adam Tyler

Interlibrary Loan

Columbia Theological Seminary faculty, students and staff may make requests for books and photocopies of articles not owned by the JBC Library through interlibrary loan (ILL).

To submit a book or article request:  Search WorldCat to locate the book.  Then select “Click for ILL request” link to submit your request.

If the article that you are seeking is not found in Article First, please send the complete article citation to and the library staff will submit the ILL request for you.

ILL requests are placed through the OCLC-ILL system and can take 2-4 weeks to be filled, depending on the lending library. For photocopies of articles, the lending library determines the cost of copying and that cost is passed on to the patron. For materials to be returned to the lending library, the due date, as well as late fees are determined by that library and are passed on to the patron. The Library is prohibited by copyright law from placing more than five requests for articles from any one periodical title in a five-year period. Patrons are required to comply with all copyright laws.
