Interlibrary Loan Borrowing and Lending

Borrowing Requests

The Interlibrary Loan borrowing service allows faculty, staff and students to borrow materials from other libraries if items are not held or available online at the University of Regina Library. Users must have a currently active library account to use the online interlibrary loan form; the 14 digit barcode from the card or your ID number is required to authenticate user status.
