Membership Information

How to Join

All students enrolled at the College are automatically members of the library. A student card is required to borrow resources. Student cards may be purchased at the Library if the fee was not included in your enrolment fees.

Borrowing

Students are entitled to borrow up-to 10 items. Loan periods for items may vary from 1 week to a Semester.  You will be advised at the time of borrowing. You can also access your borrower record online to see when items are due back.

Renewing Loans

Items may be renewed up-to 5 times provided they are not overdue or reserved by other borrowers. You can renew your items in person, phone or email.

Reservations

You may reserve an item when it is on loan. This can be done online or asking Library staff to place one for you. You will be notified when the item is available for collection.

Returns

All loans should be returned by the due date in good condition. Late returns cause problems for students who may be waiting for an item. Students who fail to return overdue items may be prevented from further borrowing. You will be invoiced for items not returned or returned damaged.
