I searched for an item and it says "no records found". What should I do?

When using LibrarySearch, if your search produces no results, you can expand your results to include items not held by the University of Toronto Libraries and conveniently request them via interlibrary loan. 

From the FILTER options, toggle “Include results from outside U of T” 

Catalogue search with no results, instruction to toggle "Include results from outside U  of T".

Any listed items not held by U of T Libraries will present the option to submit an interlibrary loan request.

Select the "Get it from outside U of T" option. 

An auto-populated request form will appear. Confirm the details are correct, choose a pickup location and select "Send Request".

After your request is submitted, you can check your LibrarySearch account for updates on the status of your request(s). You will receive an email once your request is available.

You can also submit an interlibrary loan request using a blank request form, or place an interlibrary loan request on items from the U of T Libraries collection that are not currently available
