Loan Periods & Submission Deadlines

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Loan Periods

Material Loan Period
Library books 2 hour, 4 hour, 24 hours or 5 days
Instructor's personal books 2 or 4 hours
Audiovisual materials 2 or 4 hours

If a book is placed on reserve for multiple courses the shortest time period requested will apply.

Submission Deadlines

Requests submitted before the following dates will be ready in time for the first week of class:

Fall term: August 1
Winter term: December 1
Spring/Summer term: April 15

Processing Time

Due to the number of requests submitted before the beginning of each term, our policy is to process the first 3-4 weeks of readings initially, and then add the remaining readings in advance of the reading date. 

At other times of the year: 1-2 days

Processing time depends on the availability of the material.  Contact the Library Reserves for rush requests.
