Borrow from another university

If you're looking for a book the Brock Library does not have, you may want to check if a nearby university library has it in their collection: 

Students may borrow books in person from other Ontario university libraries (Direct Borrowing), with the exception of the University of Toronto. A valid Brock University Identification Card is required, and users may be required to show additional picture identification. Books may be returned to the lending library or to the Circulation Services Desk at the James A. Gibson Library.

Arrangements also exist for borrowing from out-of-province universities (Atlantic, Quebec, Prairie and Pacific).

See Canadian Universities Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement for more information.
