Visitors from Other Canadian Universities


The A.P. Mahoney Library participates in the Canadian University Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement (CURBA), a resource sharing program with other Canadian university libraries, enabling Canadian university students, faculty and staff to borrow regular loan items in person.  Direct borrowers may borrow up to 5 items at one time from the A.P. Mahoney Library collection and are not permitted to borrow short-term loan items or to recall items on loan.

All borrowed material is subject to recall.  Returns may be made to any Western or Affiliate University College library, or to the borrower's home library but it is the responsibility of the borrower to ensure that material is returned by the due date.

Direct borrowers are responsible for late, lost or damaged material.  Failure to return materials by the due date may result in the suspension of further borrowing privileges and other sanctions applied in accordance with the borrower's home library's policies and procedures.

Library material may be returned to any Affiliate University College Library, any Western Library, or to the A.P. Mahoney Library Service Desk.  The library at St. Peter's Seminary does not have an after-hour book drop.  The closest book drop is located outside of the Cardinal Carter Library at King's University College.

Library Card

Direct borrowers will require a valid student or faculty/staff borrower's card from their home institution and should expect some delay, as their current status at their own institution will be verified by telephone or email.

To apply for borrowing privileges print and complete the Direct Borrower Application Form and present it with valid university ID to the staff at the Service Desk.
