End of ILL Services at the Library and Archives of Canada in Ottawa

It is a sad day for many users of our national library. Please note the following announcement:

End of ILL Services
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services at Library and Archives Canada (LAC) will end in December 2012. Users of LAC’s current services should note the following dates:
· November 13, 2012 : End of loan requests from international libraries.
· November 16, 2012: End of renewals. All items loaned after this date will be non-renewable.
· December 11, 2012 : End of loan requests, location searches, and ILL-related photocopying services.

LAC’s ILL listserv (CANRES-L) and Canadian Library Gateway also will be archived in December 2012.

LAC will continue to facilitate inter-library loan activities among other institutions through the ILL form in AMICUS, and through ongoing administration of Canadian Library Symbols.
