EZBorrow, the service behind the University of the Sciences interlibrary loan program for borrowing books and other physical items from libraries throughout our region, is migrating to a new technology platform on August 12, 2021.
The new platform allows libraries to improve service to our patrons by using the latest library technology. The open source code gives libraries more customization options and allows them to more quickly adapt to new technologies and patron needs while keeping operation costs down. The new platform is also owned and governed by a community of libraries and developers, promoting collaboration across libraries and institutions and creating more opportunities for future functionality and patron benefits than ever before.
This will provide the Usciences' community world-class access to library collections that will only improve going forward!
EZBorrow users can expect:
⎼ A new and improved search interface, allowing users to easily browse, find, and request materials held at our 60+ partnering institutions
⎼ A new login page that makes use of the same single sign on username/password that you’re used to using elsewhere at Usciences
⎼ More tools to help library staff fill your requests faster and more accurately
⎼ Future enhancement that will allow members of the Usciences' community to request articles
Although the technology is changing, the benefits of the EZBorrow service remain the same. Patrons can still check out books from library partners around our region with the same speed, efficiency and convenience that EZBorrow has always provided!
Library patrons should:
⎼ Keep requesting materials as usual! Although the platform is changing, the service is the same.
⎼ If you wish to keep your request history, please contact a librarian before August 31 for help downloading this information. This information cannot be moved into the new system, and after August 31st, it will no longer be available.
Questions? Contact us!
Although we aim to make this transition as smoothly as possible, we expect there will be questions! Please don’t hesitate to contact the library using Ask a Librarian.
