Overview of Services

Eligible Drexel University community members may use either of the Libraries InterLibrary Loan systems (E-ZBorrow or ILLiad) to get books, journal articles, and other materials not available through Drexel University Libraries.

  • Interlibrary Loan services via ILLiad are free to University faculty, staff, students, residents and fellows.
  • E-ZBorrow is only available to Drexel students, faculty and staff.
  • Eligible Drexel University members may borrow items by visiting participating regional libraries. Learn more here.
  • You can find more information about InterLibrary Loan Services on the FAQ Page.

E-ZBorrow

  • NOTICE: Effective March 18, 2020, all E-ZBorrow services are suspended until further notice. We have extended all E-ZBorrow loan periods until the Drexel Libraries reopens.
  • You may continue to place interlibrary loan (ILL) requests via ILLiad. Recognizing much of the Drexel community is working remotely for the spring term, Libraries staff will attempt to provide electronic versions of all content requested via ILL.

ILLiad

  • You may use ILLiad to request materials such as journal articles, conference proceedings, CDs, and DVDs.
  • Many book titles not available via E-ZBorrow may also be requested via ILLiad.
  • Most journal article and book chapter requests are filled within one to two days. All other requests are usually filled within five days.
  • Check the status of your request by logging into your ILLiad account.
  • You will be notified by email when your items are ready to be picked up at a Drexel Libraries Service desk.
  • Due date and renewal eligibility for all items requested via ILLiad is determined by the lending library. You can submit a renewal request by logging into your ILLiad account.
