Loan Period

Undergraduate students may borrow Laurentian books for a period of 21 days to a maximum of 30 books.

Graduate students may borrow Laurentian books for a period of 120 days to a maximum of 50 books.

Placing a Hold

If a book is on loan to another reader you may reserve it for yourself by signing in to Your Account via the Library Catalogue. When the reserved item is returned to the Library you will be notified by email that it is available. The item will be kept on the "hold shelf" for 4 days. Please forward this email to racer@laurentian.ca so that Library staff can collect your book and ship it to you.

Renewing Books

All books from Laurentian's collection may be renewed up to 3 times, for a further 21 day loan period, unless requested by another borrower. A 120-day book may be renewed once.
