Interlibrary Loan (ILL) - RACER

This guide provides information and instruction to faculty, students, and staff with regard to interlibrary loan and the use of RACER

What am I searching?

RACER can search for a particular item in many different library catalogues at once using the Z39.50 protocol.

Catalogues are organized into Profiles. Some of these are location based, while others are grouped by function or discipline. By default, you are searching Ontario universities including your own.

 

 

Selecting a profile will automatically select all locations in that profile. You can remove locations you do not wish to search by unchecking the box next to their name. You can also select or deselect all schools from the bottom of the list.
