Interlibrary Loans

Your library card gives you access to materials from across North America! 


TRAC (The Regional Automation Consortium) is a partnership of the Marigold Library System, Northern Lights Library System, Peace Library System, Yellowhead Regional Library, and their member libraries. Your library is a member of TRAC.

TRAC's shared catalogue, TRACpac, allows you to search the holdings of over 170 libraries with nearly three million books, DVDs and other material available for borrowing. With your TRAC card, you can borrow library materials, access eResources, place holds, and renew items through TRACpac.

Requesting Items Outside of TRAC

Relais is an interlibrary loan system allowing users to search for and place holds on materials unavailable through the TRAC shared catalogue. Peace Library System staff then use the system to fill requests from libraries across the province. A video tutorial on how to use Relais is available on Niche Academy.

TAL Card

TAL Card enables Albertans to walk into over 300 public, post-secondary and government ​special ​libraries across the province, borrow material and return it to any participating library. 

Registering for a TAL Card is free, which you can request from library staff at your home library. TAL Card users have the same walk-in borrowing privileges as local library card holders. Materials borrowed can be returned to any TAL member library.

Me Libraries

The ME Libraries service is for patrons wishing to borrow from a public library within Alberta other than their home branch/system.

You can register via using your library card barcode and PIN. Once logged in, you can choose which public libraries to register with. Once you have registered your card at another public library, you can use that public library as any other local library patron. 

A list of participating libraries is on the ME Libraries website
