INTERLIBRARY LOAN 

INFO - INFORMATION NETWORK FOR ONTARIO

Using INFO (Information Network for Ontario), libraries can provide for the information, cultural and recreational needs of their citizens, using the resources of public libraries across the province and beyond.  INFO incorporates web-based interlibrary loan management software (VDX) with the catalogues of public libraries across the province. INFO users can also access non public library resources such as Archives of Ontario and public and non-public libraries across Canada.
