Interlibrary Loan

As members of TRAC (The Regional Automation Consortium), Peace Library System library patrons have access to the holdings of over 170 libraries. These are sent and received by mail, government courier, and library system courier.

Mail is sent using the Canada Post Shipping Tool at a discounted library book rate. PLS will reimburse member libraries for the cost of book mailing rates - library staff must fill out the postage reimbursement form to receive compensation.

Patrons can also place requests for items at non-TRAC libraries to be sent to them - these items are handled through Relais.

This section of the Training Toolkit provides information for library staff on the sending and receiving of library materials.
