Borrowing Beyond Trico

Interlibrary Loan and E-Z Borrow are available, however, the pandemic continues to impact these services.

  • Request journal articles or book chapters via Interlibrary Loan. These materials are delivered electronically
  • Request books and other physical loan materials via EZ-Borrow (books only) or Interlibrary Loan (for books and items that are not available from E-Z Borrow)
  • Use the Suggest a Purchase form if you are a remote user and not able to pick up physical items from McCabe. The libraries will work to purchase a copy for your use

Please email with any questions. 


  • EZ-Borrow: Use your 14-digit barcode number on the back of your OneCard to place requests
  • Interlibrary Loan: First-time users need to create an account using their Swarthmore credentials before placing a request
  • Return materials to either McCabe or Cornell Library via the outdoor drop boxes or inside at the circulation desks
