Obtaining items not at the McGill Library

McGill students and staff may order articles and books that are not available at McGill using our inter-library loan system, Colombo.  Please do not wait until it is too late for us to help you with Colombo.

To request an inter-library loan:
1- Visit http://www.mcgill.ca/library/services/otherloans/interlibrary 
2- Log in to Colombo using your McGill username and password.
3- Click on the "Create Request" link on the left-hand side of the page. 
4- Complete the online form.  Enter as much information as you have about the article or book.  If you need to leave some fields blank, do not worry about it.
5- Select a "Pickup Location" at the bottom of the form.  It is a required field on the form, even though you will be receiving a digital copy if you are requesting a journal article or book chapter.
6- Click on the "Request" button.  You will see a confirmation message.  Remember to sign out of Colombo.
