Policies & Procedures for External Libraries

Ontario Tech University lends books and supplies copies of journal articles/book chapters to other libraries.


Ontario Tech Library will normally lend books from the circulating collection for six weeks. All loans are subject to recall.
Not Available:  Reserve materials, reference materials, archival materials, and any other materials that are in high demand by our students/faculty/staff.


The Library will not lend periodicals but will send copies of articles, subject to copyright limitations.

How to order 

Requests may be submitted via OCLC WorldShare Interlibrary Loan, or via our web form (see link below Contact Information).  Please observe the standard interlibrary loan protocol of submitting only one request per message.

Requests are not accepted by telephone.  Rush service is not available.


No charge to OCUL, PBUQ, COPPUL, CAUL-CBUA, Ontario College Libraries, or other non-profit Libraries for loans or photocopies. Charges may apply to other institutions. Charge details will be supplied before any material is shipped.
