Travelogue: The Libraries Service Center

The Libraries Service Center (LSC) is an off-site storage facility located on the APL campus in Laurel. Although considered a part of Eisenhower Library, LSC serves all JHU Libraries and patrons.

Currently housing over a million books, journals, and various other materials from all types of collections (with around 3,000 new items coming in monthly), LSC handles over 20,000 requests annually, with over 5,000 articles being delivered electronically to patrons.

Electronic delivery of articles occurs within about 2 hours of request and there are 2 deliveries of print materials per day from LSC to Eisenhower during the week. Materials are delivered to other libraries once a day during the week.

LSC is open 7 days a week, happily accepting requests in a variety of ways. You can check out our website and learn how to request materials from us.
