Q. What is Interlibrary Services?


Interlibrary Services lets library users borrow hard-copy items (books, microfilm, etc.) and articles (paper, electronic) from libraries all over the world. Interlibrary Services does not fill requests for:

  • items already listed in either the SJSU Library or the San José Public Library collections
  • textbooks
  • items on Course Reserves for SJSU students at the King Library

Before using Interlibrary Services, please check the San José Public Library Catalog or SJSU Library Catalog to see if the title you need is already listed in the Library's collection. You may also want to check Link+ for your title as it often has a faster turnaround than Interlibrary Services.

Learn more at Interlibrary Services (SJPL) or Interlibrary Services (SJSU).

  1. This is outdated.The relationship between the SJPL and the SJSU libraries has changed. They no longer have a joint collection or a common catalog. SJSU and, I believe, all of the California State University Libraries have withdrawn from LINK+. I don't think the information about SJSU's library is still applicable.
