University of Portland Clark Library

MEd / EdD: Graduate Programs (Edmonton): Requesting Books

Requesting Clark Library Books

The Clark Library can mail books from our collection to distance education students. However, we can't borrow books from other libraries on behalf of Edmonton students due to the short loan periods and the time needed to ship them to/from Edmonton.

To get books from the Clark Library's collection:

  • Locate a book that you wish to request via UP Library Search. If it is an eBook, you can access it immediately online!
  • If it is a print book, select the book title to see the full record. Follow the prompt to log into your library account which will then display requesting options.
  • Choose the Request from Interlibrary Loan link to submit your request.

Only need a chapter from a book? You can request it through UP ILLiad (Interlibrary Loan) and we will deliver it to you online as a PDF.

Book Shipping & Return

Book Delivery:

Books will be shipped to Canadian students via FedEx International Economy, in about 3-5 days.

Returning Books:

A prepaid shipping label will be included for returning the books to the University of Portland. You are responsible for prompt return of borrowed books.
