Community Borrowers

JBU Library issues courtesy cards to local pastors, students/faculty affiliated with other colleges and universities, and immediate family members of JBU employees. Members of the local community who do not fall into one of these categories may purchase a general patron card for $10/year. Visit the library circulation desk to request a card. Due to licensing restrictions, we cannot provide off-campus access to online resources to community borrowers, but you may use our databases by visiting the library in person and using our computers. See the information sheets below for more information about the policies and services for each category of patron.

Visitor parking information is available here. A campus map is available here (we're in building #10). The main entrance to the Learning Resource Center is on the Quad (east) side of the building.

Policies for all patrons:

  • Collaborative Work Areas/Quiet Study Areas: The main floor of the library and the group study rooms are set up for collaborative work and conversation. The second floor is the designated quiet area.
  • Materials Used In-House: Please do not reshelve books and journals that you have used in the library. We keep statistics on in-house use for reporting and planning purposes. If you are able, bring items to the circulation desk when you are done with them; otherwise leave them on a table or book cart. 
  • Food & Drink: Food and drink are permitted in the library  in fact, coffee and tea are available in the library for 50¢/cup. Please be considerate of library materials and other users by avoiding foods that are especially messy or have strong odors.
