You must be a staff member or Fellow of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, Inc. and be a registered Jefferson Library patron to request materials.
You may also place a loan within the Thomas Jefferson Portal for items we do not own (click the blue "Request via Interlibrary Loan" link). If you are unable to locate an item in the Thomas Jefferson Portal and would like place a request for an interlibrary loan, please fill out the form below. Please note: The lending library may place restrictions on materials loaned. You must comply with those restrictions.
The Jefferson Library must comply with the Copyright Law (Title 17, U.S. Code) and the accompanying guidelines when requesting photocopied material. Please read this before submitting any requests for photocopies:
The copyright law of the United States [Title 17, United States Code] governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified by the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
Please email the Research Librarian if you have any questions or call 434-984-7543.
