Do you occasionally find yourself in a community where you’d like to use the research library? Under a new pilot agreement, JHU students, faculty, and staff have on-site borrowing privileges at the following BorrowDirect institutions: Brown University, University of Chicago, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Duke University, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, and Yale University.

Be prepared to present your JHU ID and login to your BorrowDirect account. Once authenticated you will be issued a library card.

Borrowing privileges vary by institution, and the lending library’s policies and loan periods apply. Before you visit, you should review individual library polices. Borrowed items may be returned at either the lending library or JHU.

For the most part, these same materials already are available through BorrowDirect, but this new agreement expands BorrowDirect to include in-person borrowing.
