Getting a Book from Lakehead

Did you find a book at Lakehead that you want to borrow? You can have it delivered to your door.

1. Tips for searching the Lakehead catalogue are on this page

2. Search the Lakehead catalogue and under "Resource Types", use the "Books & ebooks" filter to narrow down to book results.

3. Click the title to see a detailed record for the book.

4. If you just need a book excerpt, or a journal article, from a physical book or journal, look for the "Get It" area, and sign in with your Lakehead username and password.

5. Choose "Request Scanned Excerpt" and fill in the information about the excerpt that you need. You will receive your request by email.

6. If you need the print copy of a book, please email Chris Tomasini with the information about the book that you need. The "Permalink" button in the catalogue (when you are viewing the full information of the book) generates a link that you can send to Chris, so he can see the book information page.

Getting A Book From Another University

If Lakehead or Georgian do not have a book that you need, you can request a print copy from another Ontario university via Lakehead's OMNI search system.

Search the Lakehead OMNI system as you would normally, and to place a book request from another universiy, follow these steps. Your login is the same as what you use for Lakehead email.
