EZBorrow 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. EZBorrow is the fastest way to get a book not available from NYU Libraries.

Who’s Eligible

NYU students, faculty and staff located in the continental United States and at NYU’s Abu Dhabi campus may use EZBorrow.

Turnaround Time

EZBorrow is a faster service than traditional Interlibrary Loan (ILL), and most requests will arrive in about a week.

Loan Periods

EZBorrow books are available to library users for 16 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.
