EZ Borrow: Home

What is EZ Borrow?

E-ZBorrow is a new service that is the fastest way for W&J Students, Faculty, and Staff to borrow books that may not be available at Clark Family Library.  You can simultaneously search more than 50 academic library catalogs throughout Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and West Virginia.

EZ Borrow

If the Clark Family Library doesn't have the book you need, use E-ZBorrow to request it from the more than 50 academic E-ZBorrow libraries located in PA, WV, NY, and NJ.

  • Your patron ID is the 7-digit number on the back of your W&J ID Card (Swipe).
    If your ID number does not have 7 digits, add 0's to the beginning of the number to make 7 digits.  If your ID Card does not have numbers on the back, please contact the library at 724-223-6070.
  • Items are generally delivered in less than 5 business days
  • You will be notified via email when your item is available for pickup
  • E-ZBorrow items are checked out until the end of the semester for students and 15 weeks for faculty.
  • The E-ZBorrow system is only for books.  If you need to request an article, please request it through Interlibrary Loan.


If you have any questions or need assistance with the E-ZBorrow service, please email or call 724-223-6070.
