If the item you want is not available at SFU, it can be requested from another library (Interlibrary Loan) and delivered to Belzberg Library. This usually takes one to two weeks. See Borrowing materials from other Libraries for more information.
- Request an Interlibrary Loan for books or articles not available at the SFU Library. Most article indexes also allow you to request copies of journal articles directly online, using the "where can I get this?" link. For more information, check the Interlibrary Loan guide.
