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

First Time Users

Register for RACER - ILL

Rapid Access to Collections by Electronic Requesting (RACER) is Onatrio Tech’s virtual union catalogue allowing registered users to seamlessly search and borrow items from university libraries and collections across Canada.  If necessary, ILL staff will also perform extensive searches (including libraries outside of Canada) if the material cannot be found via RACER.  Please note that material ordered from outside of Canada will take longer to arrive

To use RACER, Ontario Tech students, faculty and staff must register using the RACER Registration Form link below.

Before making an online request, please review the ILL Policies section.

NOTE:  Due to the pandemic, turnaround times will be longer due to delays with couriers/Canada Post, materials quarantine requirements, and limited staff on-site across institutional partners to manage mail routes and lending.
