The Interlibrary Loan service (ILL) permits you to borrow documents that are not part of McGill Library’s collection. This service is offered exclusively to McGill professors, current students and staff as part of their teaching, learning, research and work activities at McGill University.
Requesting a document via interlibrary loan is done through Colombo, an online system used at all Québec universities.
