   » About easyBorrow


The Library participates in two services which allow Brown students, faculty and staff to place direct online requests to borrow books from partner libraries for expedited delivery to Brown.

Use easyBorrow (above) to search once and let us select the quickest service that meets your needs. If our partners cannot supply an item, easyBorrow will automatically pass your request to Interlibrary Loan. You may instead select from the individual services below but you will have to re-key your search for each service.

  1. BorrowDirect provides a single, searchable catalog of the combined holdings of Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, MIT, Princeton, University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania, and Yale. » more information
