Request Materials

There are several ways to request materials at the Greater Sudbury Public Library.

Depending on the availability in our collection, you have 3 choices to request items:

Place a request from our collection

If the title you wish to borrow is currently on order or available in our catalogue, we welcome you to reserve a copy and have it delivered to the GSPL location of your choice.

Suggest a title

If the title is not in our collection but has been published or produced in the past 2 calendar years, please make a suggestion for the library to purchase a copy. Please note that as of January, 2013 suggested purchases will no longer be placed on reserve automatically.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to recent provincial budget cuts, all interlibrary loan service in Ontario has been suspended effective immediately until May 31st, 2019. You may continue to place requests through this form only but please note that requests will not be processed until June 1st, 2019 - after which there will be a delay due to the backlog.

If the item you wish to borrow is not in our collection and is older than 2 calendar years, you may request that we borrow a copy from another library in Canada through interlibrary loan.
