Guidelines & Regulations

  • Check the Library Catalogue to make sure that the item you need is not already available at Douglas College. Items in the Douglas College library or required textbooks may not be borrowed through interlibrary loan. Requests are limited to materials in support of work or studies undertaken at the College. 
  • You will be contacted when the interlibrary loan is available for pick-up. 
  • In general, books must be returned within two weeks after our library receives them, however, a maximum of one renewal is allowed depending on the lending library's ILL policy. E-mail Interlibrary Loans or phone 604-527-5197 to see if your interlibrary loan can be renewed.
