Research assistance

Library staff are ready, willing and able to assist you with your research, suggest research strategies, and recommend ways of making the best use of JKM, I-Share, ACTS and University of Chicago resources. Contact us using the 'Ask a question' function on the right-hand side of the screen, contact us at, or drop by the library.

Interlibrary loan

Users are encouraged to place requests for materials not available from JKM and the other I-Share libraries through WorldCat. More information is available here.

Printing, photocopying and scanning

One printer-photocopier-scanner is available in the JKM Library for public use. The cost of photocopying and printing at the JKM Library is $0.15/page (double-sided copying counts as 2). We encourage our users to use the free, eco-friendly scanning function of the photocopier-printer-scanners whenever possible. Users can either email their .pdf files or download them to a flash drive.

Public computers

Public computers are available for use in the JKM Library. We ask that our users limit their access to non-research-related purposes if others are waiting.

Wireless access

Full wi-fi access is available on both the second and third floors of the west wing. Ask for the password at the circulation desk.
