Borrowing Privileges:

Students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Nebraska Methodist College (NMC) have borrowing privileges at John Moritz Library (JML). Off-campus database access is available to NMC students, faculty, and staff and NMHS employees. 


No more than three items from one subject area can be borrowed at the same time.

Overdue Items:

We do not collect fines on overdue items; however, you may not check out or renew other items until overdue items have been returned.

Replacement Fees:

Every borrower is responsible for library materials checked out in his/her name. Borrowers are billed replacement costs for lost, damaged, or unreturned items to the library plus a $10 processing fee. Bills are sent approximately 90 days after an item is due. The NMC Business Office is notified of outstanding bills and a block will be placed on a students account.


All checked out resources are subject to recall after the initial loan period. Items needed for course reserves or clinical support are subject to recall at any time.

The John Moritz Library Catalog can be used to determine what books the library has in the collection on campus. The catalog can be searched by author, title, or subject. If the library owns the book, you may place a hold on that item. You can also access your library account through the catalog to renew any items that you have checked out.

John Moritz Library participates in the Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement of the Nebraska Library Association College & University Section.

Reciprocal borrowing is an agreement whereby the faculty of participating Nebraska colleges and universities may borrow library materials at other participating libraries. This provides Nebraska's higher education community a convenient alternative to interlibrary loan.  John Moritz Library extends borrowing privileges of only print resources [excluding serials and reference items] to faculty of participating institutions. Borrowers must present valid faculty identification from their own institution.

Additional details about the Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement are available on the website of the College & University Section of the Nebraska Library Association:
