E-ZBorrow During Covid-19 Response Period: At this time, E-ZBorrow services are suspended. Once it is again active, visit E-ZBorrow here. This service allows you to borrow books from other libraries if those books aren't available at Gumberg.

ILL During Covid-19 Response Period: While we are not lending physical materials during the COVID-19 response period, we will borrow and lend electronic materials that are available. Some libraries are not offering this service, so we may not have access to as many electronic resources as normal, but we will do our best to fulfill electronic requests.
