VDX (Interlibrary Loan Software)
Patrons may use TAL Online to request any item that is not owned by a library within Parkland, but is available from another Alberta library.
In VDX, staff can request items for patrons that are not held in Alberta libraries.

Interlibrary Loan Statistics for the Annual Report
In January, Parkland will send out member libraries' VDX statistics for annual reports. Note that these numbers do not distinguish between in-province, out-of-province, OR out-of-country requests; the different types of requests are lumped together and not separated out. Note also that the VDX stats do not include any ILL requests you made or filled outside of VDX; libraries will need to add those.
Do you have VDX questions? Need to schedule VDX training? Email email@example.com, or call 403.782.3850 and ask for Interlibrary Loan Services.
