Books by Mail
Books By Mail is a service offered to Penn graduate students and faculty members to facilitate their research while living 75 miles or more away from campus. Eligible participants will be able to request delivery of on-shelf Penn Libraries circulating materials via insured carrier to their homes.
BorrowDirect/EZ-Borrow & Interlibrary Loan
Log in to BorrowDirect or EZ-Borrow to request a book from one of our partner libraries. If not available through either of those services, use the Interlibrary Loan book request link in the left-hand column or request through the PennText link in WorldCat.
Search the combined catalogs of libraries throughout the world. You can request a book that is not available through BorrowDirect or EZ-Borrow via WorldCat by by looking up the book, clicking on the title, then clicking on the PennText box in the record, and clicking on the Interlibrary Loan link.
