Request for books, DVDs or journal articles

Check the library website for the material you need to borrow and submit a request for each item.

Loans & renewals

Materials must be returned by their due date (see chart below) or renewed for a longer period of time. You can renew online by logging into your library account.

Delivery & return of materials

Unless other arrangements are made, delivery of all materials will be by Canada Post Priority Post courier, insured by Douglas College. We ask that materials be returned by Canada Post Priority Post Courier and insured by the borrower.

Journal articles

The library does not loan complete issues of journals. Instead, copies of articles will be faxed or mailed to you and these do not have to be returned.

Interlibrary loan

You can also borrow books and journals articles from other libraries by filling out an interlibrary loan form.
