Request items from other campuses

This service is not available in the 2020/2021 academic year.

If you'd like to borrow a library item that is held on a different University of Toronto campus, you can request delivery of material to the campus of your choice through the library's delivery service.


Items held at Downsview off-site storage, as well as the Mississauga, Scarborough, and participating St. George campus libraries are eligible for transfer. 

Current University of Toronto students, faculty and staff are able to place requests. Visiting faculty and graduate students with Direct Borrower status are only eligible to request delivery of items held at Downsview off-site storage.
