MTA Libraries' interlibrary loan services allows you to borrow books and articles not available in our library.
You do not need to find out which library has the item you are requesting -- we'll do it for you.
Once you have determined the item you want is not in our library, simply fill out our interlibrary loan request form (link in gold box above).
Here are a few reasons why you may have been denied access to the ILL form:
Mount Allison students, faculty and staff may borrow materials from other libraries by obtaining a CAUL (Council of Atlantic University Libraries) Card.
CAUL Borrowing cards permit Mount Allison University students, faculty and staff to borrow library material IN PERSON from any CAUL/CBUA library in the Atlantic Provinces as well as from University libraries across Canada that participate in the Canadian University Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement.
Mount Allison students (including distant education students), faculty and staff who are in good standing with the library may obtain a CAUL card by visiting the Access Services Desk of the R.P Bell Library.
All CAUL cards are issued with an August 31 expiry date. Students working on summer research projects may be eligible for a card during the summer.
Please note that the card holder is subject to the rules and regulations of the library from which they borrow the library materials, including rules regarding the types of material which can be borrowed and fines. It is the responsibility of the borrower to find out about the rules and regulations at the lending library.
Library materials borrowed using a CAUL card may be returned at the Mount Allison Libraries.
