James A. Gibson Library


Brock's interlibrary loan management system allows registered users to search for items in all Ontario university and worldwide libraries using a single search interface, and to conveniently place borrowing requests for items Brock University does not own. 

This virtual union catalogue is named RACER (Rapid Access to Collections by Electronic Requesting).

Print and microform interlibrary loan materials borrowed on behalf of Brock users are signed out using the Brock Library circulation system. Users are able to track the due dates of these materials using the “My Library Account” service. These materials are subject to recall notices and overdue fees outlined on our Interlibrary Loan Fees web site.

When registering as a first time user, we recommend you enter your Brock email address (e.g. instead of a personal email address when completing the RACER registration form, since all notifications for the arrival of materials, electronic deliveries, cancellations, recall notices, messages, etc. are automatically sent to this email address. RACER users are responsible for reading and responding to these email messages.

Please contact Interlibrary Loan at 905-688-5550, ext.3231 or send an e-mail to for further information.
