Fall 2021 Interlibrary Loan Update

The Library provides this service for University of Calgary students, faculty and staff. The Library will deliver journal articles directly to you.

Distance Education Requests

Eligible Students are limited to those enrolled in distance education programs (e.g. Social Work Online, Graduate Division of Education Research, and some others).

Students enrolled in distance education may use the Interlibrary Loan / Document Delivery request form to request books or journal articles. Mail delivery of physical items may take longer than usual but at sent at no cost. Books include a postage paid label to return material to the Library. Ensure that you return materials by the posted due date. Journal articles are yours to keep.

The Library recommends that students try using E-books, HathiTrust Digital Library Emergency Temporary Access Service and article requests, before placing a request for a physical book.
