Borrowing from other University Libraries

Interlibrary Loan
 
If you are unable to visit another University library, you may request items not available at Brock through our Interlibrary Loan system, RACER. To submit a request through RACER, you must first register in the system.
For more information on registering and submitting requests using RACER, see http://www.brocku.ca/library/ill or contact the Interlibrary Loan office at 905-688-5550 ext. 4647 or by email at racer@brocku.ca
Materials take 5-10 working days to arrive, and you will be notified by email when your item is ready for pick-up. Pick-up of materials is only available at the James A. Gibson Library (St. Catharines) and the Hamilton Campus.
