Book Borrowing Guide

Basics for borrowing books at WVU

Avoid late fees and renew online

Get Books not @ WVU

Use E-ZBorrow to get books quickly from a group of Pennsylvania libraries called PALCI. The loan period is four weeks as is the renewal. You may request text books. Since subject searching is too slow, do title searches only.

Use interlibrary loan (the software is called Illiad) to get books and articles from other libraries.  Use your MyID to logon.
