Borrow from Other Libraries

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, some restrictions are in place.

  • Intercampus delivery is available from participating University of Toronto libraries, including the Robarts Library, U of T Scarborough Library, and UTL at Downsview.
  • Interlibrary loan requests are available and can be retrieved via curbside pickup.

However, the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service provides access to digital copies of millions of print books held at the University of Toronto Libraries, allowing access to many of the materials held at other libraries at the University.

Please check back for updates at COVID-19: Service and Operations Updates at UTM Library.

Borrow from Other U of T Libraries

University of Toronto students, faculty, and staff can submit intercampus delivery (ICD) requests for some items available at other University of Toronto libraries.

Borrow from Other Institutions

The interlibrary loan (ILL) service lets you use RACER to request research materials not owned by University of Toronto Libraries. 


RACER stands for Rapid Access to Collections by Electronic Requesting, and is an automated interlibrary loan service for Ontario universities managed by Scholars Portal. RACER lets eligible Ontario university students, staff and faculty request copies of articles or loans of books and other materials that are not held in their own university libraries. RACER also allows many Ontario University Library catalogues to be searched at once and so much more!


Scan & Deliver

The Gerstein, Robarts, and UTM Libraries have launched a Scan & Deliver pilot. U of T faculty, staff, and graduate students may request articles from print journals at these libraries to be scanned and delivered to their desktops via email.
