Search for books in Novanet

But it's not at Dal!

First - is it in Novanet?

Materials listed in Novanet may be requested clicking the "Document Delivery & More" option. 

Clicking the "Go" button beside "Document Delivery" will take you to the CAUL Document Delivery request form. Log in with your barcode (the 13-digit number on the bottom of your Dal card) and password (the last 4 digits of your phone number). The form will be automatically filled in with the information of the item you want but please check that the information is complete, add a "need by date" and any notes, click on the box next to the copyright statement and submit the request.

Document Delivery requests filled by any Atlantic Canadian university library will also normally arrive within 3 business days. If the material is not locally available delivery times will vary.

You will be notified by email when your requested material arrives. All requested items are to be picked up at the Access Services desk at the Dalhousie Library you specified on the form.

King's students must pick up books at the King's library. Articles will be delivered by e-mail link to your registered Dalhousie/King's email address.

It's not in Novanet, now what?

Use the following link to the CAUL Document Delivery Request form. The same Document Delivery login and services as described above apply. Select the appropriate "Loan/Book" or "Copy/Article" option. Fill in the form and submit the request.

What's the difference between the Novanet catalogue and Novanet Classic?

Short answer: Novanet is our new discovery layer for searching the holdings (including electronic) at Dal and the other Novanet libraries (ie. academic libraries in Nova Scotia). Novanet Classic is the old version. Novanet will also allow you to find individual articles, while Novanet Classic will not. Usage depends on your preference.
