Falvey Memorial Library will soon be moving to a new E-Z Borrow system. The company providing the web service, Relais International, has worked with the PALCI consortium, of which Villanova University is a member, to develop a new application that will enhance the E-Z Borrow experience for users and staff alike.
The web interface, which allows patrons to search for materials held at other libraries, will allow advanced item searches, behaving more like a library catalog. Patrons can sort search results, refine their search for subject headings or authors, and, when the item is not available through E-Z Borrow, link directly to Interlibrary Loan or our local catalog, from which they may “Place a Hold.”
When we are ready to “go live,” more detailed instructions will be made available to library patrons.
