Interlibrary Loans

INFOntario Interlibrary Loan Website

Information Network for Ontario (INFO) is the interlibrary loan resource sharing network provided by Southern Ontario Library Service and Ontario Library Service North.  When a patron has searched the Deep River Library collection and does not find what they are looking for, they can request books on interlibrary loan.

Requesting an Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

You may request using two methods:

 

  1. You may visit our library and fill out a blue interlibrary loan request form (available at the circulation desk).
  2. You may take advantage of the self-service patron-initiated interlibrary request.  With this option you must register for the service by providing your name, telephone number and library card number in an e-mail to our interlibrary loan office at earcher@deepriverlibrary.ca.

 

Certain restrictions apply.  Materials requested must be:

  • At least six months old.
  • Not in high demand in other libraries.
  • Not fragile or rare.
  • In agreement with the other library’s policy.
