Quiet Places to Study

College Learning Commons can be busy, yet they are still the best places to study and get assignments done. If you find the main area of the Library or Learning Commons too noisy and it distracts you from your work, ask a staff member to help you find a quieter place to study.

Library materials can be renewed in person at the library or over the phone.

 

Periodicals and Reference books are not loaned and may not be taken out of the library.

Student IDs are Library Cards, Too

All KCTCS patrons are required to have a student or faculty Photo ID card which also serves as your KCTCS library card.

Photo ID cards are made at the Downtown and Southwest Libraries and the Learning Commons on the Bullitt, Carrollton, Shelby and Technical campuses.  Community patrons please ask about borrowing materials at the library’s circulation desk.

Request Books from Other Libraries

If a Jefferson Library does not have an item you require, you may be able to borrow it from another library through Interlibrary Loans. 

Interlibrary Loan Request Form

Allow at least two weeks to receive the item. Depending upon availability of the item, it may take longer.

Usually there is no cost for interlibrary loans. If the item is available only from a library that charges a fee, the librarian will tell you of the cost before ordering the book.

If you lose, damage, or keep a book past the due date, you are responsible for fines or fees.

JCTC Students are Metroversity Students

Kentuckiana Metroversity is a consortium of eight institutions of higher education: Bellarmine University, Indiana University Southeast, Ivy Tech Community College Southern Indiana, Jefferson Community and Technical College, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Spalding University, and University of Louisville.

As a Metroversity member institution all Jefferson students, faculty and staff have library privileges at all eight institutions. You can visit any library and use your student or staff ID to use services or go to your home library and have books or materials delivered by a courier service to your library.
