Using EZBorrow

EZBorrow is a system used to search and request books and other media (DVDs, CDs, etc.) from academic libraries in Pennsylvania and several surrounding states. We advise our students and staff to use this system when Gumberg Library does not have the item they are searching for. If the item you need is not available through EZBorrow, we recommend you try ILLiad (InterLibrary Loan)

To use EZBorrow, perform the following.

  1. Go to
  2. Login with your Duquesne multipass username and password 
  3. Select Advanced Search (top right)
  4. Enter Title in Title field, and/or other search terms in the appropriate fields
  5. Select Search
  6. Look over the titles that match your search and select one.  Selecting a title "held by" more libraries increases the likelihood that you will receive the item. 
  7. Select Request.
  8. EZBorrow items typically take about 2-5 business days to arrive at Gumberg Library for pickup

When the book you have requested arrives at Gumberg Library, you will receive an e-mail notification. You can view the EZBorrow items you have borrowed from other libraries on your library account.

For any questions about requesting an item from another library through EZBorrow, please contact us at 412.396.6130 or
