Request a Learning Guide

Learning Guides are resources that the Learning Commons creates that highlight a course, subject, or even an assignment. Some of our Learning Guides feature book lists or streaming video displays. We would love to work with you in creating a Learning Guide to meet your needs.

Request Books or Articles from Other Libraries

If a JCTC Learning Commons 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. 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 Learning Commons tell you the cost before ordering the book or materials.
  • If you lose, damage, or keep a book past the due date, you are responsible for fines or fees.
