Interlibrary Loans

The library at CRTS provides interlibrary services for its faculty and students, as well as other libraries wishing to use CRTS's library resources.

Services for Students and Faculty of CRTS

CRTS students and faculty who require material which is not available from the library may contact the librarian and request an interlibrary loan.  Whenever the library at CRTS is invoiced by the lending library of the item, the invoice cost will be payable to CRTS by the person requesting the interlibrary loan.

The library at CRTS participates in interlibrary loans. CRTS does not use OCLC for interlibrary loans, although its holdings may be found on OCLC. The CRTS library is listed in the Directory of the Archives and National Library of Canada.
