Provincial Resource Sharing Network Policy
The Provincial Resource Sharing Operational Policy (Dec 2012) and the Public Library Network Policy (Dec 2012) govern interlibrary lending outside the PRL system and apply to all public libraries in Alberta. Provincial resource sharing is based on a principle of reciprocal borrowing. That is, libraries lend their material to other libraries who lend like material.
Communities without a library that participates in reciprocal borrowing through the provincial network are: Andrew, Banff, Lamont, La Crete, Fort Vermilion, Veteran, Willingdon, and Zama.
The Inclusions List (updated November 2013) 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 November 2013). Note: this list only includes libraries that do participate in the provincial resource sharing network.
