Books not owned by the library can be requested using ILLiad or E-ZBorrow (for Pennsylvania users). See our Requesting Books page for instructions. Always search the Library Catalog for PCOM holdings before requesting a book through ILLiad or E-ZBorrow. Please note that textbooks are not available for interlibrary loan.

Pennsylvania users have a self-service option in E-ZBorrow. Login to the PALCI catalog with your PCOM Library ID #.

You can find your PCOM Library ID # on the back of your PCOM ID card.  Your Library ID # consists of four zeroes + the final five digits on the back of your PCOM ID (see below).
