Access Services

Access Services includes many of the services provided by the Nancy Thompson Learning Commons. This department is comprised of Circulation, Course Reserves, Interlibrary Loan; as well as the loan of laptops and study spaces.

Interlibrary Loan

Many of the items that are not carried by the Nancy Thompson Learning Commons can be accessed through our Interlibrary Loan system. This system allows for items that are held by other academic institutions to be lent to Kean University. Loan period varies by lending library. Please allow 1-2 weeks for processing/retrieval, depending on the format/rarity/availability of the material(s). Simply go to for more information on how to request electronic items through Interlibrary Loan.
