If you know the title, author, and other details of the item you are looking for, use our interlibrary loan request form to borrow it from another library. Ordering journal articles will take about 3 business days and books 1 - 3 weeks. Items will be ordered only from within Canada. Special exceptions may apply, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. for more details
There are no renewals allowed for items ordered this way. Loan period is usually 2 weeks.
If you are using a UFV library resource and you see the link "Full text finder?" click on it.
Allow the various search boxes to open (your pop up blocker must be turned off) and search till finally you are given the option to enter your personal details. The item will be requested for you or if there is a problem you will be contacted.
If you live near SFU or UBC or any other local university you may apply for a COPPUL card. With a COPPUL card you can go to the other library and borrow material directly from them.
If you get items this way you will be able to go back to the library and ask for renewals. This is an advantage over the first option listed here. The disadvantage is that you have to return the item back to the original library. We will not return it for you.
