Borrowing from Other Libraries

What is E-Z Borrow?

Available to current Chatham students, faculty and staff, E-Z Borrow is a quick way to get a book that is checked out or not owned by the JKM Library. E-Z Borrow allows simultaneous searching of over 50 academic library catalogs in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and West Virginia. If you need a book that is not available here at the Jennie King Mellon Library, request it directly through E-Z Borrow.

What is ILLiad?

Available to current Chatham students, faculty and staff, ILLiad is the electronic system you use to request an item through Interlibrary Loan. The name ILLiad can be thought of as an acronym for InterLibrary Loan internet accessible database.

At this time, the Chatham staff, faculty, and current students may borrow from area institutions by ordering materials through E-ZBorrow and ILLiad. Don't forget to check the JKM Library first!
