Interlibrary Loans

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 lockdown.

If you can't find what you need here, you can get books and articles from other libraries through interlibrary loans (ILL).

ILL service is available to currently registered Carleton University students, staff and faculty in good standing.  Alumni, community borrowers, and other external borrowers should contact their local public library for interlibrary loan services.

Note:As part of the University's ongoing efforts to ensure the safety of our community, while the Library remains open there will be changes to our services and opening hours for the remainder of the Winter 2020 term.
We will no longer be open for in-person drop-ins or questions. Please email questions to


Search RACER to find items from other universities that are available for interlibrary loan.  RACER also lets you submit and track all your interlibrary loan requests online. See our "Tips for Using RACER" for assistance.
