If you have used E-Z Borrow in the past, you will now notice that it has a new and improved interface. Some key advantages of the new interface include more streamlined (and faster) searching, advanced search features, better and condensed search results, and improved search retrieval time. All participating libraries are searched at once, rather than being divided into search groups as they were previously. The search results are more relevant and you now have the option of sorting by relevance, title, or publication date.
