ILL Policies & Inclusions Lists
Provincial Resource Sharing Network Policy
The Provincial Resource Sharing Network Policy (updated April 2010) governs interlibrary lending outside the PRL system and applies to all public libraries in Alberta. The Provincial Resource Sharing Network is based on a principle of reciprocal borrowing. That is, libraries lend their material to other libraries who lend like material. The Provincial Resource Sharing Network Policy for Alberta Public Library Boards was updated in October 2009 regarding the libraries that do not participate in reciprocal borrowing through the network.
The Inclusions List (updated August 2012) outlines the types of material available for interlibrary lending from each library and any restrictions that apply.
Here is a list of Alberta libraries that do not participate in reciprocal lending of specific A/V formats (updated August 2012). Note: this list only includes libraries that do participate in the provincial resource sharing network.
