Circulation

As we make the transition to return to campus, our in person library services will be available on Mondays and Thursdays, 9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m., beginning Thursday, September 9th. Circulation services are available for:
 

  • books* (holds are available using Omni and may be picked up at the SJU, Dana Porter, or other UW Library locations, or by mail)
  • DVDs, and
  • the resources of 16 Ontario university libraries through Omni.
     

Assistance is available through libraryhelp@sju.ca (monitored Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.).

 

*Please note that due to the Hathi Trust Emergency Access Service Agreement in place during the pandemic, we are not able to lend paper copies of any books that are part of the Hathi Trust electronic resources. For more information click here. If you attempt to place a hold on a book that is in the Hathi trust, the Library catalogue (Omni) will not permit the hold to be placed.

 

There is currently no access to our physical collection.

 

Library help and study spaces are also available through the University of Waterloo libraries.
