The NSCAD Library is a partner in an interlibrary loan group called CAUL-DDG (Council of Atlantic University Libraries/Conseil des bibliothèques universitaires de l'Atlantique Document Delivery Group). We use an automated system called Relais to manage the delivery of materials from one library to another. This system allows us to quickly order books, articles and other media from libraries in the Atlantic region, across Canada, and around the world. In turn, we loan our circulating materials to patrons of libraries outside the Novanet system.
As a partner in Novanet, we also participate in a free document delivery service between Novanet libraries called Novanet Express.
