Outlook Online is a catalogue of materials in public and college libraries in British Columbia. If you can't find something at PMPL, try Outlook.
- Outlook will not tell you if the book is currently available in a library.
- If you are looking for a recently published work and it does not appear in Outlook, try searching other library catalogues directly.
- If you see a book in another BC public library that you want to read, the fastest way to get the book is to go to the other library yourself to borrow it. If this is not possible, you may ask that PMPL borrow it on your behalf. To do so, submit an InterLibrary Loan request.
