E-ZBorrow allows Villanova students, staff, and faculty to initiate their own requests to borrow books from the participating Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium (PALCI) institutions. These include many institutions in Pennsylvania and the surrounding region. The E-ZBorrow direct service is currently not available for requesting journals, audio/video, or photocopies of journal/newspaper articles.
Note: If the book is Not Charged and not on the shelf, you may also contact the Circulation Department at (610) 519-4464 to initiate a search for the item
Once connected to the PALCI site, enter the 16-digit number on the front of your Villanova WildCard in the 'Patron ID' field. Enter the numbers without any spaces between them. After you locate a desired item, select 'Submit Request.' The PALCI system will choose the best lender out of the available lenders for that item. E-mail updates about the status of your requests are sent promptly.
Books received through this service must be charged out at the Falvey Memorial Library Circulation Desk upon presentation of a valid Villanova WildCard and returned to the same location.
You can check the status of your requests in the PALCI system at anytime by visiting the same address you first used to search for your request:
Courtesy patrons must use their public libraries to borrow books from other libraries.
Should your request not be available through E-ZBorrow, traditional interlibrary loan is still at https://villanova.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/logon.html.
