The Library offers two interlibrary loan services. E-ZBorrow is the fastest way to receive books and DVDs. Use HawkShare to request journal articles and book chapters, or books and DVDs that you cannot find in E-ZBorrow. You must be a current student, faculty, or staff member to use these services. There is no charge for these services unless the material is overdue, damaged, or lost. Users will be notified by e-mail when their requested material is available. Required text books, items available at the Library, and ebooks are not permitted to be requested through Interlibrary Loan.
