Interlibrary Loan

Student Studying in Library

Interlibrary Loan Service Policy


The library offers students and faculty the opportunity to borrow materials not currently owned by the library through the use of two web-based methods, E-ZBorrow and ILLiad. 

E-ZBorrow

E-ZBorrow is a web gateway that allows simultaneous searching of academic library catalogs in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and West Virginia. Using your Misericordia ID number, you can search the catalogs of over 60 academic libraries for books that you want and then place requests yourself.  It’s fast and there are no charges incurred when books are returned on time. Books are usually loaned for a period of three weeks with the chance for a one-time renewal before the due date.  Materials are picked up and returned at the Circulation Desk. Always check Misericordia’s library catalog first for the availability of desired materials.  Click on the E-ZBorrow icon to place a request. 

Patrons will be assessed a fine of $.25 per day for items not returned by the due date. A processing fee of $10.00 will be added to the replacement cost of materials that are lost or returned damaged.

ILLiad

The library uses a web-based interlibrary loan system (ILLiad) to facilitate processing your requests.To utilize this system, you will be prompted to set up a web-based account using your Misericordia ID and Password. This is the same ID and Password that you use to access e-MU and your Misericordia email.

 

Interlibrary loan requests must be submitted through this web-based system. You will receive articles directly into your ILLiad account. Requests for books and videos  submitted through ILLiad can be picked up at the Circulation Desk.

Generally, there is no fee associated with interlibrary loan. However, some libraries may charge for lending materials. When submitting your request, you will be asked whether you will pay up to $11 for the material. if you do not agree to pay this fee, the interlibrary loan staff will contact you concerning fees before the article can be received.

Patrons will be assessed a fine of $.25 per day for items not returned by the due date. A processing fee of $10.00 will be added to the replacement cost of materials that are lost or returned damaged.

Requests will be processed in the order in which they are received. If you need further assistance, please contact the Circulation Desk at (570)674-6231
