We are restarting print Interlibrary Loans services for students, staff and faculty

We're ready to restart print Interlibrary Loans services for students, staff and faculty. Alumni, community borrowers, and other external borrowers should continue to contact their local public library for interlibrary loan services.

It is important to note that owing to the different institutional requirements, currently 9 (including Carleton) out of 21 Ontario university libraries are currently offering ILL services.  

As this important service is still operating in a limited capacity, users should expect longer than normal turnaround times before receiving their materials. If the material is available online through HTAS Emergency Temporary Access Service, the lending institution will not be able to lend the print item.

In the event that the service has to be closed again, as the situation with the pandemic continues to change, we will post updates to our website and through social media.

To use our ILL services, please visit the Interlibrary Loans services page.
