Obtaining Books Found in the Library's Catalogue (Omni)

Once you have found the item in the Library's catalogue (Omni), you can request it. 

You will need to be signed into the Library's catalogue in order to place a request.

Expect delivery within three (3) business days. You will receive an e-mail when the item is available for you to pick up.

Obtaining Books NOT found in the Library Catalogue

If the item cannot be found in Primo, you can search RACER, the interlibrary loan system for University Libraries across Ontario (and elsewhere), and request it to be sent to you.

Click on the RACER link at the top of the Primo page.

RACER can also be accessed directly from the Library's homepage under Services (left menu).

Expect delivery with 7-10 business days. You will receive an e-mail when the item arrives.

  Google Books

Search the Google Books collection.  You may be able to access the full text book online or just search Primo for the book title to determine if you can access the book in the UW, UG or WLU libraries.
