Technical Writing: Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan

Remember, if you cannot locate a book or article through Andruss Library's resources, you may request the item through Interlibrary Loan.  Simply use the link below, supply your LIB# (22404...) from your BU ID card, and fill out the appropriate form.

Interlibrary Loan

Though we at the Library cannot promise when an item will arrive (in the case of a book) or be e-mailed to you (in the case of an article), the turnaround time is usually just a few days.


Another interlibrary loan option is EZBorrow.  This service enables you to both search for and request books from other academic libraries in the region.  Because EZBorrow draws from libraries in Pennsylvania and surrounding states, turnaround time is usually 3-4 business days.

Remember, EZBorrow is only for books: no articles or ebooks.  Books requested through EZBorrow will be delivered to Andruss Library for pickup.  You will be notified by email when a book you requested is available for pickup at the Circulation Desk (1st floor).  Renewal of a book borrowed through EZBorrow is dependent upon the policy of the lending institution.  That is, a lending library may or may not allow you to renew a book.

To login to EZBorrow, use either your HUSKY ID and password OR your LIB# (22404...) found on the bottom left corner of your BU ID cardEnter your Library # (lower left corner of BU ID card, no dashes, no spaces) for your logon number.
