General Borrowing GuidelinesSummary of Borrowing Privileges:
Library Cards for Undergraduate Students
Connecting to Electronic Resources
Extended Library Services
Interlibrary loan service for distance students is dependent on where you live.
Distance Students who are living within Alberta and at least 90 km outside of Lethbridge may request both types of interlibrary loans (e.g. books or journal articles).
Journal articles are sent electronically to your email address. You must return all other library loans to the University of Lethbridge Library by their due dates using the same delivery methods we used to send them to you (e.g. Canada Post, private courier, etc.). The Library may restrict requests only to Canadian locations.
Distance Students who are living outside of Alberta and Canada may request copies of journal articles or chapters of books which will be sent electronically to your email address.
The Library is unable to offer interlibrary loan services involving other libraries books because the borrowing time granted by other institutions is insufficient for sending, using and returning materials.
For these students, the Library is happy to provide you with library cards permitting direct use of libraries in your area. For more information on these cards, see the information above: TAL card, COPPUL card.
Unfortunately, these cards (the TAL Card and the COPPUL Card) are not valid outside of Canada. In some cases libraries outside of Canada may request a formal letter from us requesting library service on your behalf. Please contact us if you require this kind of documentation outside of Canada.
NOTE: If paying by Internet or telephone banking, the University Library will need proof of payment before the fines can be removed from your library record. To obtain this proof, please email the University’s Cash Office at email@example.com to have them confirm receipt of your payment transaction, and then ask them to notify the Library’s General Services Desk (329-2265) that your fine has been paid.
