What is the Kelly InfoExpress service?

Kelly InfoExpress for graduate students and faculty is a resource delivery service geared towards meeting the research needs of our community. We aim to fill requests within three business days.

Eligible patrons can submit retrieval requests for books or book chapters, print or electronic articles, and other materials available at the John M. Kelly Library, other University of Toronto libraries, or through interlibrary loan. We will supply retrieved materials directly to you.

Please note that the InfoExpress service can only reproduce materials within the limits of the Canada Copyright Act and University of Toronto Fair Dealing Guidelines. You will be advised of any copyright restrictions that may apply to your request.

All physical books must be returned to the Kelly library.
