Access to Library Resources

The JKM Library has a wide variety of resources available for LSTC and McCormick students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Our licensed digital resources are available 24/7/365 through our website or through Primo, our catalog. If you need a scan of an article or chapter, you can place a document delivery request (although turnaround time will take longer) either by using the ‘Click here to request a scanned copy of an article or essay/chapter’ function in the databases or sending an email with complete bibliographic information to ihaveaquestion@jkmlibrary.org.

In order to borrow print books and other hardcopy resources, you have two options:

·         requesting them from JKM or one the other 87 I-Share libraries, which is done by logging into Primo with your OpenAthens credentials and placing a request for pickup; or,

·         borrowing them in person from the Regenstein Library of the University of Chicago (1100 E. 57th Street, just two blocks south of the LSTC/McCormick campus)

While limited in our ability to fulfill all requests, you are always welcome to suggest a book that might be purchased in e-format by contacting library staff at ihaveaquestion@jkmlibrary.org.

As noted above, individuals currently affiliated with McCormick or LSTC enjoy access to the University of Chicago library system, and we encourage all our users to acquaint themselves with their extraordinary resources.

Unfortunately we’re unable to extend access to the resources of the University of Chicago libraries to our alumni, but we will continue to provide access to the Atla Religion Database with Atla Serials PLUS, and the Anchor Yale Bible and Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary in electronic format.

If you have questions, contact library staff at ihaveaquestion@jkmlibrary.org.
