TAL Online is a provincial wide discovery service which allows users to discover and request physical library items from libraries across Alberta. TAL Online connects remotely to library catalogues across Alberta and displays search results for users looking to request items not available at their home library.

Once a user initiates a request for an item at TAL Online, the request for that item is sent to the users home library. The actual fulfillment for the item is taken care of by the users home library. If you have any questions about the status of your request, please contact your home library and ask to speak to someone who works with interlibrary loans.

The TAL Online user interface was developed by Affinity Bridge and the search API which powers the search engine is maintained by IndexData.
