Using the Library

InterLibrary Loan


If you need materials that Connelly Library does not own or which are unavailable, there are two services that can help :

  • E-ZBorrow is a self-service option (for books only): you search for the item and we get it to you.
  • Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a full-service option: we search for the item and get it to you.

These services are provided at no cost to you.

E-Z Borrow

  • Input a title, an author, call number, subject or ISBN/ISSN to search for the book that you seek.
