E-ZBorrow is a service that allows NYU users to search the combined catalogs of more than 50 research and academic libraries, and request books not available at NYU. E-ZBorrow is the fastest way to get a book not available from NYU Libraries.

Turnaround Time

Books are delivered to Bobst Library within 3 to 5 business days. Other locations may have a slightly longer turnaround time. You will be notified via your NYU email when your book arrives at the NYU Library you selected.

Loan Periods

E-ZBorrow books are available to library users for 12 weeks, and cannot be renewed.

Requesting Other (Non-Book) Formats

This service is for hard copy book titles only. For all other formats, use Interlibrary Loan.
