Welcome to PALCI’s brand new version of EZBorrow. The general requesting principles are still the same but the Libraries’ wanted to point out a few items of note.
There will be an option to select a need by date before submitting your request. We suggest that you do not select one. Generally EZBorrow books arrive within 3-5 business days. By selecting a date you could cause the request to time out of the system and go unfilled.
Currently there is a delay from the time you submit your request until you receive the confirmation email. This is a known bug that is being worked on. If you are unsure if your request went through, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can check for you.
You are now able to see a list of available lenders as you are searching for an item. This is for informational purposes. You cannot target your request to be filled by a specific university.
Drexel books will also appear in your search results. While you can request a Drexel book through EZBorrow and it will be re-rerouted back to the Libraries, it would be better to search the Libraries’ catalog and request the book there.
Multi volume sets: If you only want a specific volume please indicate that on the request.
There is a Mail to Me option as a “pick up location”. Please use this ONLY if your are off campus (non-Drexel housing) or a Distance (Online) Learner.
Please confirm your address in Drexel Central. That information feeds into the library system and alerts the Print Resources staff where to mail the item.
The item will be mailed via UPS with a return shipping included.
Any questions about using EZBorrow, please contact Print Resources at email@example.com or 215-895-6785.
