Services and information about borrowing from other libraries
Our Document Delivery Service supports the teaching, learning and research needs of Dalhousie faculty, students, staff and affiliated groups by obtaining materials not held at a Dalhousie or Novanet Library from an external library or document supplier.
Holiday Suspension of Document Delivery Services
Dalhousie Document Delivery services will be CLOSED between December 24th - January 1st inclusive. Requests submitted during this period will be processed beginning January 2nd.
Please note: Most libraries begin suspending the loaning of Document Delivery books or microforms in early December. Requests for copies usually continue to be filled up until a few days before Christmas. If you require an item prior to our holiday closure on December 24th, please indicate this in the notes section of your request. If your need by date cannot be met Document Delivery staff will notify you via email.
