The Mack Library has agreements with local college/university libraries that allow our faculty/staff/students to utilize their collections. Just bring your college ID to JMU Libraries, Mary Baldwin College Library, Shenandoah University Library, and Eastern Mennonite University Library to check out any of their books.
The library also has a borrowing agreement with participating members of the Virtual Library of Virginia. See our Circulation Policies page for more information.
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copy order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
