Interlibrary Loans


The Jonathan Trumbull Library is pleased to offer interlibrary loan service. If you would like to borrow materials not owned by the library, you may call or visit the Library (860-642-7763) to ask for assistance or you may request them yourself online. 

      The first, fastest and best way to borrow an item that JTL doesn't own is to request it from another Bibliomation library by following the instructions below.

Important Interlibrary Loan Information for Jonathan Trumbull Library Patrons

The Connecticut State Library announced that the reQuest online Interlibrary Loan catalog will shut down on June 30, 2015 for at least two months while they bring a new Interlibrary Loan system online. 

Because of this decision by the Connecticut State Library, effective June 1, 2015, the Jonathan Trumbull Library can no longer accept Interlibrary Loan requests via the online reQuest catalog.  We apologize for any inconvenience. 

In the meantime, we will continue to offer Interlibrary Loan service through our own library catalog with Bibliomation.  Currently, at least 80% of our interlibrary loan  requests are fulfilled by one of our 64 member libraries.  If you need assistance using the catalog to request interlibrary loans, please ask library staff for assistance. 

We will keep you posted and we thank you for your patience..  The State Library estimates that a new Interlibrary loan system will be implemented by the fall of 2015. 

Call the library (642-7763) for assistance with any part of this process
