ALLIES, ALabama LIbraries Exchange Service, is a partnership between several Alabama academic libraries. Currently, the ALLIES libraries include Auburn University, Auburn University at Montgomery, Jacksonville State University, University of Alabama, and University of Alabama at Birmingham. With this partnership, ALLIES patrons can place online requests and/or check out items from any of the ALLIES libraries provided they have an approved photo ID and meet the requirements of an ALLIES patron. For more information about this service, please see our Frequently Asked Questions Flyer about ALLIES.
The ALLIES libraries use UPS to deliver requested materials. Depending on when the lending library processes the ALLIES request, materials should be delivered within two-three days of the request. However, if you place the request on a Friday or the day before a holiday, it could take longer.
After placing an ALLIES request, you should monitor your JSU email. Any correspondence regarding your request (book was not found on the shelf, book cannot be sent, etc.) will be sent to this email address. If the first library cannot fill the request, you may try to get the needed material from another ALLIES library.
Please contact Debra Deering-Barrett if you need further assistance.
