Books not owned by the library can be requested using ILLiad. Always search the Library Catalog for PCOM holdings before requesting a book through ILLiad. Please note that textbooks are not available for interlibrary loan.

PA users have a self-service option in E-ZBorrow. Login to the PA Academic Library Consortium catalogs with the LIB# on your PCOM ID. If you have any trouble logging on, call the Circ Desk at 215-871-6470 and a staff member will verify that your LIB# is correct in the system.
