Interlibrary Loans

Want an item we don't have?

With Illume Interlibrary Loans, you can search for items in nearly all of the province's public and university libraries, and have them sent to one of our branches.

Formats that can be requested include print material (excluding magazines and newspapers), DVDs, audiobook CDs and music CDs. For customers with a print disability, all of the above and any other accessible formats can be requested.
