InterLibrary Loan Options


Top of Page

Direct borrowing InterLibrary Loan service for Clarion University students and employees provides access to items from over 35 Pennsylvania Libraries.

Students: Your E-Z Borrow Patron Login is 9 + your Clarion ID number. Click here for help determining your Clarion ID number.

Faculty and Staff:  Use a nine-digit number consisting of a series of leading zeroes followed by your employee ID number.  (Use enough preceding zeroes to create a nine-digit number.) Your employee ID number can be found on your pay stub.

This service is not suited for most Virtual Campus/distance education students, since items must be picked up either at the Carlson Library (Clarion Campus) or the Suhr Library (Venango Campus).

Distance Education students may use ILLiad to request books from other libraries as well as books from the Libraries' on-site collections.

Clarion University uses ILLiad software to manage InterLibrary Loan requests.

Local students and employees: Use ILLiad to order needed books and periodicals not available in the Carlson or Suhr Libraries.

Virtual Campus/Distance Education students and faculty: In addition to requesting materials from outside the Clarion University Libraries' collections, you can also use it to order books and periodical articles from the Libraries' local collections.
