The RACER service is only available to current Queen's students, faculty and staff. The cost of ordering an interlibrary loan (ILL) is significantly subsidized by Queen's Library.

Login to RACER

Use RACER to borrow items (books, journal articles, multimedia) from other University libraries in Ontario. When accessing RACER please make sure you are logged out of the Queens University web proxy if connecting from Off Campus.

How to Use RACER

There are three ways to place RACER interlibrary loan requests:

  1. Login to RACER and fill in a blank order form
  2. Login to RACER, search multiple Ontario university library catalogues, find your desired book or journal, and place your RACER request
  3. Search Library databases and Google Scholar, click on the "Get It! @ Queen's" link and click on the link "Order a copy - RACER".

In all cases, you must indicate your preferred Campus Library pick-up location as part of submitting your RACER request.

Printable RACER Tip Sheets:


Queen's, with other Ontario university libraries, uses RACER for all interlibrary loan requesting.

RACER enables Queen's Library to offer enhanced ILL service to the University community: With RACER, you log on to the system and submit your request(s) directly into the RACER database. This accelerates the ordering process and provides you with the ability to check on the status of submitted requests at any time, via the web.
