Borrowing Books from Other Libraries

Policies and information about borrowing from other libraries. These services are free but require working WVU MyID credentials.

Interlibrary Loan

ILLiad is used to request materials not owned by the WVU Libraries. Use ILLiad to order articles and get them in 24-48 hours. The first time you use the service, you must register with your local address and the campus library where you prefer to pick up your books. You can get books from ILLiad, but not textbooks. 


This service enables WVU students, faculty, and staff to borrow books unavailable at WVU Libraries directly from the participating academic libraries. Not all books are available through EZBorrow. Try it first for books. You cannot get artilces through EZBorrow, but you can get some textbooks.
