What if Marshall doesn't have the book that I want?

Do you need a book that Marshall doesn't own?  You have great options:

  • EZ Borrow is a group of more than 50 academic libraries, mostly in Pennsylvania.  You can request books and in many cases the books will be ready for pick-up in 3-5 business days.  The check-out period is 6 weeks.
  • IDS/ILL  is our Information Delivery and InterLibrary Loan service.  This is a free service and can be used for books and items that are not available through EZ Borrow.  It may take longer to obtain books so be sure to plan ahead.
