The Collections of the Ivies+ Now at Your Fingertips

How would you like to be able to search and borrow books from the eight libraries of the Ivy League (Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton, and Yale) as well as the libraries of the University of Chicago and MIT?

You can with a new service called Borrow Direct.

The JHU libraries have joined a consortium which allows our patrons to request books directly from their collections. You can request any book that is not owned by Hopkins, or is checked out or on reserve. The books will be delivered to SAIS within 5 business days and you can keep them for 12 weeks.

You can find the Borrow Direct link via the Library’s homepage. Give it a try, and let us know what you think at
