Interlibrary Loan

A further note about obtaining materials not found at Queen's Library...

Queen's Library has a free interlibrary loan system (RACER).  It can be used to borrow print books, or order copies of articles.  For MEERL students, the print book borrowing option is NOT available - we cannot mail print books to you, and licensing agreements generally forbid the use of ebooks for interlibrary loan.  However, most articles are sent electronically: therefore, you may use this service to order copies of articles.  They should be sent electronically to your Queen's email account.

To use RACER, you may log directly into the system.  

  • User ID = the 14-digit barcode on your Queen's card. 
  • Password = your last name (all lowercase)
  • Library = Queen's

Fill out a blank request form with the article's citation information and submit the form.

NOTE: If you do not already have a Queen's student card, contact  to obtain an off-campus student card.

Alternatively, if you are using the GetIt@Queen's link from Google Scholar or a library database and you encounter a screen like the one below, click on Request via Interlibrary Loan (RACER).  A form filled with the article's citation information will be generated, and you will be asked to enter your user ID and password.
