Western and Affiliate students, faculty, and staff are eligible to request materials not available from Western and Affiliate Libraries for free via Omni.
If your requested item is not available from an Omni partner, Interlibrary Loan staff will continue to search for another library in Canada or Internationally to supply the item.
If you are unable to find the item you need in Omni, or already know the citation information, you can use the blank request form to get an item from another library.
1. Select "Interlibrary Loans" from the top navigation in Omni.
2. Complete the form selecting either "Book", "Article", or "Book" plus "I only need a specific chapter or pages" for a chapter or excerpt of a book.
3. ISBN or ISSN is a required field. If the item was published prior to ISBN and ISSN numbers, indicate "unknown" in the field.
4. Select a Pickup Institution and Pickup Location. This will be used to deliver a physical item. If you are requesting an article or book chapter, it will be sent as a PDF to your Western email.
