Borrowing books and articles beyond the Tri-Co


Books not available from Bryn Mawr, Haverford or Swarthmore libraries (or that are checked out) can be requested through the E-ZBorrow consortium of academic libraries in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and West Virginia. This is an expedited interlibrary loan system (requests usually take 3-5 days). 

If items are not available in E-ZBorrow, request books, journal articles, dissertations and other materials through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

Getting Started

To request materials not available at a Bryn Mawr, Haverford or Swarthmore (Tri-College) library, visit our Borrowing Beyond Tri-Co page.



Requests for materials can be placed any time.
