EZ-Borrow books are ordered online from other libraries and sent via UPS to Marshall University for your use. We are bound by the lending library loan periods and must also factor in the USPS 4th class book rate time-table when we return them to avoid overdues.  EZ-Borrow books can be checked out for 28 days with one 28 day renewalrenewal.  EZ-Borrow book fines are $1 per day.
