Staff will try to locate the video within Quebec and Ontario libraries. If you are aware of the title's location at a library outside of Quebec or Ontario, please let us know and we will do our best to make arrangements to obtain it. The video collections of Ontario academic institutions can be searched through a media catalog search.

Please note that, when booking from external institutions, the Libraries cannot guarantee availability of videos on the date requested. We recommend booking well in advance of the show date. Bookings are made according to the external institution's policies. Courier services may be required and must be paid for by the department responsible for the booking.
