COVID-19 Interlibrary Loan Update

This service is available for current University of Calgary students, faculty and staff only. The Library will deliver journal articles directly to you. Currently, delivery of physical items is unavailable from other University Libraries (do not request books, videos etc.)

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 during Covid-19. 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.
