Request physical items from Quebec university libraries: Network Loan

The McGill Library and the 17 other BCI member Quebec university libraries now have a shared library services platform. This means that McGill faculty, students, and staff can now borrow physical items belonging to all these institutions by requesting them through the library catalogue (Sofia).

The requested item will be delivered to a McGill branch library of your choice for pickup.

Requested items will normally be delivered to within 4 business days (up to 2 weeks for more distant institutions). 

Items not available via Network Loan:

  • articles and book chapters: please request articles and book chapters found in items held at other Quebec university libraries via Interlibrary Loan
  • ebooks
  • reserves
