Document Delivery

Also known as Interlibrary Loans, Document Delivery supports the instructional and research needs of the StFX community by borrowing materials which are unavailable at StFX libraries either in print or online.

For Distance Students Living Outside of Nova Scotia

Your local library (whether a university, college, hospital or public library) should be your first resource for locating physical research material. Most local libraries will lend books and allow you to photocopy materials. They may require you to have a CAAL (formerly CAUL) card to borrow books.

A CAAL Card grants you in-person borrowing privileges at most universities in Canada (outside of Nova Scotia) and must be requested from your home library (StFX). If you did not sign up for a CAAL card when you registered or updated your library account online, please contact us at to obtain one.  A CAAL card will only be granted to patrons with accounts in good standing.

To borrow material in-person from any Novanet library, you may present your StFX ID card (CAAL card not required) at their Circulation desk.
