- Off-Campus Access
Members of the general public are welcome to use library resources on site and consult staff for assistance. Individuals who are engaged in legitimate research or instructional, professional, or administrative activities and must have access to specialized collections for professional or job-related purposes on a short term basis are eligible to apply for guest borrower privileges.
Guest borrowers are permitted to borrow up to 5 regular loan items at one time from the collection of the A.P. Mahoney Library and may borrow from the libraries of King's University College, Brescia University College, and Huron University College. They are not permitted to borrow short-term loan items, to recall items on loan, or to use Interlibrary Loan services.
Library material may be returned to any Affiliate University College Library, any Western Library, to the A.P. Mahoney Library Service Desk, or via the 24 hour book return at Cardinal Carter Library.
To apply for a library card, print and complete an Application for Guest Borrower Status. Each application must be accompanied by a letter stating the nature of your research and affiliation, subject area and type of material to be used, and the time period requested for borrowing privileges. Submit the completed application form and letter to the attention of the Associate Librarian.
Borrowing policies and procedures for Western Libraries may be found here, along with an application form.
