The library is operating virtually due to COVID-19. We will continue to process interlibrary loan requests for resources available electronically (ex. journal articles and book chapters). We will not be able to supply hardcopy loans (ex. books and DVDs).
What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?
If you are looking for books or articles not held in the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM), Laurentian, or Lakehead collections, these items can be requested via Interlibrary Loan. This service is free to all Northern Ontario School of Medicine learners, staff, and faculty members.
ILL services are also available to NOSM Alumni at a cost of $10 per request. Please email all requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
