Bryn Mawr Borrowing Beyond the Tri-Co: E-ZBorrow and Interlibrary Loan

E-ZBorrow Book Requests

We partner with many regional libraries through a program called E-ZBorrow. E-ZBorrow:

  • Lets you search the library catalogs of nearby universities, and request books from them.
  • Is only for book requests. They cannot lend journal issues, DVDs, or scan chapters.
  • Is the fastest request service for books. E-ZBorrow books usually arrive in 3-5 business days.
  • Books may be renewed up two times via your Tripod account, using the name and bar code on your OneCard: "Your Checked Out Items". The renewal period is 30 days and each E-ZBorrow book can be renewed twice. So, you can have a book lent via E-ZBorrow for up to 90 days!
  • Requests can be made via the form linked in Tripod, under the Borrowing Beyond Tri-Co menu.
  • To access the menu, click the right-hand navigation icon in Tripod:
