EZBorrow is created by a consortium of 60+ academic libraries located within Pennsylvania and surrounding states. Currently, EZBorrow can only be used for the lending of books. Patrons search and make requests themselves through the EZBorrow system for items the PennWest University Libraries do not own. When the item arrives a notification email is sent and the item is placed on hold at the Campus Library Circulation Desk or mailed to Global Online students. Response time is generally within a week. Requests are loaned for a period of 16 weeks with no renewal.
