Under the terms of the ACCESS COPYRIGHT and the COPYRIGHT ACT R.S.C. c. C-42 as amended, Interlibrary Loans cannot order copies of more than 10% of a published work, 5% if it is to be e-delivered, or one journal article per issue.

RACER tracks borrowing patterns-if there are more than 5 requests for the same article within a 3 month period, Laurentian University will attempt to purchase a copy from the source.

To receive any article you must agree that the document is to be used solely for the purposes of research, private study, review or criticism. You are required to print a copy of the article and destroy the electronic version. The electronic version may not be stored, forwarded or distributed. Failure to abide by this policy may result in your rights to use the electronic delivery program (EDP) being suspended or revoked and you may be subject to liability for copyright infringement.


Please note, RACER is NOT to be used for a practice exercise.
