RACER (Rapid Access to Collections by Electronic Requesting) is a system used to submit Interlibrary Loan requests online. Use this service when the Lakehead University Library system does not hold the item in its collection.

RACER also allows users to quickly search for materials across multiple library collections. For example, all Ontario Universities or all Canadian Universities can be searched at once.

All requestors should check Lakehead's Online Catalogue and the Electronic Journals available on the Library's web page to ensure that the desired material is not already available in our own collection.
