Borrowing from Other Libraries (Colombo) > Information for other libraries

This guide explains how to use Polytechnique's ILL service in order to obtain documents which are not part of the Library's collection.

LOANS

COVID-19: The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service is being maintained, but as all sectors are affected, some documents may be more difficult to obtain than usual. 

The Library manages loan requests received from outside institutions through the Colombo system. 

Colombo is the ILL search and request system used by all Québec universities. Outside users may access the Voilà group catalogue for Canadian libraries to locate documents held in Québec university libraries.

Libraries may use the web form to submit requests.

DOCUMENTS AVAILABLE FOR LOAN

  • Monographs
  • Government publications
  • Polytechnique technical reports
  • Polytechnique theses

The loan period is 5 weeks and renewal is available. Copies are also available for purchase, via ProQuest.

The Library provides photocopies in compliance with copyright regulations, with the exception of standards documents, which cannot be photocopied.
