RACER, which stands for Rapid Access to Collections by Electronic Requesting, is an automated interlibrary loan service for Ontario universities managed by Scholars Portal.


 RACER stands for Rapid Access to Collections by Electronic Requesting.
The system allows library card holders from Ontario university libraries to search across multiple catalogues and place an interlibrary loan (ILL) request. RACER also helps interlibrary loan staff manage loan and borrowing requests by automating ordering procedures and communication with users. 




RACER is a service of Scholars Portal, funded by the Ontario Council of University Libraries.
This guide was created by Scholars Portal to help end-users navigate the RACER interface.
