To place a request:

  • you need a valid U of T library barcode and PIN
  • connect to the UTL catalogue at http://webcat.library.utoronto.ca and do a search
  • select the desired item or click details from a list of records
  • click on ‘Request item’ and follow the on-screen instructions
  • you can request items which are currently available in a library or you can place a request for an item which is charged out
  • you need to be aware that charges may apply

If you do not find the item you want listed in the U of T Catalogue, you can request the item from another institution by accessing the RACER Interlibrary Loan service at
