Borrowing Beyond the Tri-Co: EZBorrow and Interlibrary Loan (BMC)

EZBorrow Book Requests

We partner with many regional libraries through a program called EZBorrow. EZBorrow lets you borrow books from partner institutions in Pennsylvania and neighboring states (for example, Penn, Rutgers, NYU). 

  • EZBorrow is only for book requests. No journal issues, scanned journal articles, DVDs (use Interlibrary Loan for these)
  • EZBorrow is faster than Interlibrary Loan for print books. E-ZBorrow books usually arrive in 3-5 business days.
  • Loan period is 12 weeks.
