Holiday Suspension of Document Delivery Services 2018

Dalhousie Document Delivery services will be CLOSED from December 22nd 2018 - January 1st, 2019 inclusive. Requests submitted during this period will be processed beginning January 2nd 2019.

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 the holiday closure begins. If you require an item prior to our holiday closure on December 21st, please indicate this in the notes section of your document delivery request. If your need-by date cannot be met, Document Delivery staff will notify you via email.

The Dalhousie Document Delivery Service supports Dalhousie faculty, students, staff and affiliated individuals by borrowing or providing access to books, articles and other materials needed for their teaching, learning or research. In addition, Dalhousie Libraries fully cooperate with libraries and institutions worldwide in an international interlibrary loan resource sharing service.
