EZBorrow/PALCI (Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium, Inc.) is a web gateway that allows simultaneous searching of academic library catalogs in Pennsylvania. You can directly request books from another library, thus greatly speeding up the time it takes to get the book (usually 3-4 days) as compared to 1-2 weeks for regular interlibrary loans
So, if you want to borrow a book from another library, ALWAYS try EZBorrow/PALCI first. You will need to log in with your Husky ID and password or Lib # (bottom left corner of your ID card).
Interlibrary Loans - ARTICLES
If materials you need are not available in Andruss Library collections, you may request to borrow them from other libraries through interlibrary loan.
Please note that interlibrary loan agreements do not allow the Library to request material we have in our own collection. Any requests for material we hold in our collections will be returned to you. So, check carefully before submitting (or ask for help) and you will save time.
To place a request, simply go to the Interlibrary Loan Request Form, select the type of material you need and fill in as much information as you have. Please note that you will be asked to login with your HuskyID and password.
For questions (such as how long your request will take, how long you can keep the material), please see further information provided on the Interlibrary Loans page of the Andruss Library website.
If you've never placed a request before, please first see your liaison librarian or staff at the Reference Desk.
