Using EZBorrow: home


When the material you want isn't available at the Hammermill library, you can search other libraries for it. EZBorrow is an interlibrary loan service that allows you to find, request, and borrow books from over 50 member libraries in PA and neighboring states. You make your requests directly to the EZborrow service, which saves time, and your materials are then delivered to the Hammermill Library in about 3-5 business days.

Access EZBorrow here


EZborrow is made possible by PALCI, Partnership for Academic Library Collaboration & Innovation, a library consortium with member institutions in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, and New York.
