ILL Articles Now Come Directly to Your Email Inbox

Something exciting happened over the summer, something that many of you have been asking for: the UFV Library implemented a new system that allows us to deliver articles from other libraries directly to your email inbox.

Now, when an article you requested via "Where can I get this?" or through our interlibrary loan forms arrives, we'll send you an email with instructions on how to retrieve it online; watch for a subject line like the following in your inbox:

Your Requested Article (PAT-10000001) is Available Online - See Instructions

If you've requested more than one article, and they arrive the same day, the email message may contain multiple links.

Please note that under Canadian copyright law, this digital copy may only be used to make a paper copy for the individual who requested it and this copy is to be used for the purpose of research or private study only.

You may also notice that some of the other messages regarding interlibrary loans are different; those, too, are a result of the new system.

Watch for changes as well in the "Where can I get this?" and interlibrary loan forms; we're working to reduce the amount of information you need to provide us when placing your request.

Got questions? Contact our interlibrary loans staff: (604) 864-4678 or
