Request an interlibrary loan

If we don't own an item, we can try to borrow it from another library system by submitting an interlibrary loan request.

What are we able to borrow from another library?

  • Books only (no DVDs or CDs)
  • Books published more than 14 months ago
  • Books our library does not own (search our catalogue to find out)

How do I submit an interlibrary loan request?

  • Go to the Outlook Online catalogue.
  • Enter the title in the search box. 
    • Click Other Searches > Advanced Search if you want to search by author, ISBN, etc.
  • Once you have found the correct item, click the request this item button.
  • Fill out the form and click submit.

How will I know when my interlibrary loan is ready for pick up?

  • You will be notified by phone.
  • It can take up to 6 weeks to get an item from another library.
How many requests can I submit?
