What is E-Z Borrow?

E-Z Borrow is a free service that allows you to borrow books not available in the Clarion University Libraries' collections.  It is similar to Interlibrary Loan through ILLiad, but often books can be obtained faster by going through E-Z Borrow. (If you find that the book you need is NOT available in E-Z Borrow, you may then submit an Interlibrary Loan request for the book using ILLiad.) When you are searching for materials in E-Z Borrow, you are searching the holdings of over 45 Pennsylvania libraries, most of which are university libraries.

What can and cannot be requested through E-Z Borrow?

Use E-Z Borrow to request books not available in the Clarion University Libraries' collections.  E-Z Borrow cannot be used to request periodical articles, E-books, or media.  (Use ILLiad to request interlibrary loan of periodical articles and media.)


Who can use E-Z Borrow?

E-Z Borrow can be used by Clarion University students and employees.  However, E-Z Borrow requires that requested materials be picked up either at the Clarion campus or at Venango College and therefore is not appropriate for most Virtual Campus students.  (Virtual Campus students may use ILLiad to request books from other libraries as well as books from the Libraries' on-site collections.  Click here for a guide to using ILLiad.)
