When your search for a book, be sure to search the NEOS library catalogue from the One Stop Search (above).
When you find a book in the catalogue, you can request it by placing a hold using the library barcode from your student ID card and your PIN. Then, choose your preferred pickup location.
If you can't locate an item you need in the NEOS library catalogue, you can request it using our interlibrary loan form
. We will try to locate the item for you at another Canadian library and request it for you. Interlibrary loans may take up to 6 weeks to arrive, depending on where the item is coming from.
When searching the databases, not all articles listed will be available in full text.
- To find out if the journal title is available in full text via our databases or available in print/ejournal format, search the journal title publication finder page.
- To find out if an article is available in full text via our databases, check the article title in the citation search page.
If the article you wish to locate is not available in full text, take these steps:
- Click the Full Text Finder button below the article citation to be redirected to the interlibrary loan request page.
- Sign in to the interlibrary loan page using your 13 digit library barcode and PIN.
Articles generally take 2 to 3 business days to arrive. You will get an email letting you know when your article or book is available for pickup.
