Citing your Sources

Interlibrary Loan

If you need a book that the JSCC Library doesn't own, please contact Vanessa Jones at 731-424-3520 ext. 50325 or by email at
Provide her with the author, title, date of publication and publisher.

The Library then asks another library to loan us the book.  We use the Online College Library Center to connect us to most academic libraries in the country.

It takes about 2 weeks for a book to be sent here from another library.
