Interlibrary Loans

Get started by searching The Alberta Library (TAL) Online to see if one of a member of our consortium has a copy.

Use TAL Online to search The Alberta Library partners and beyond. If you locate your item, you can:

  • Have it delivered to an EPL branch for pick up by clicking on the REQUEST button. NOTE: Delivery may take 4-6 weeks.

If you require it sooner, please consider either of the following options:

  • Borrow directly from Alberta's academic (university/college), public, and provincial special libraries using a TAL Card.
  • Borrow directly from Alberta’s public libraries with your EPL card by using the ME Libraries
