Borrowing from other University Libraries
Graduate students are able to use their Brock University Identification card to borrow items directly from other Ontario university libraries, as well as other participating university libraries in Canada. These items may be returned to the lending library OR to any other university library.
If you are unable to visit another University library, you may request items not available at Brock through our Interlibrary Loan system, RACER. To submit a request through RACER, you must first register in the system.
Materials take 5-10 working days to arrive, and you will be notified by email when your item is ready for pick-up. Pick-up of materials is only available at the James A. Gibson Library (St. Catharines) and the Hamilton Campus.
