Faculty/Staff Services from ncLibraries

Course Reserves

Faculty members may request that the Library put specific items on Reserve for their class for a given term by filling out a reserve request form at your campus library. These may be items already in the Library collection or items belonging to the faculty member to be kept in the Library for length of the term.

The faculty member decides whether the items may be loaned out and, if so, for what length of time (usually a much shorter loan period than regular circulating items).

  • your name, extension, and office number
  • course code and course title
  • title of the item
  • format of the item: book, article, cassette, video, folder, or other
  • length of the Reserve: for the whole term or specific start and end dates
  • loan period: 1-day, 2-day, 3-day, 7-day, or In-Library Use Only
  • owner of the item: item belongs to the Library, item is being permanently donated to the Library collection, or item belongs to and is to be returned to the faculty member

Interlibrary Loan and Borrowing from other Libraries

Can't find what you need in the library collections and databases?

We might be able to borrow it for you from another library - simply fill out an Interlibrary Loan Request Form and you'll get a timely response from the library staff.  You might also be able to borrow it yourself directly from another College or Brock University.

For more information please see this page on ILL and direct borrowing agreements.

If you have any questions please email us at library@niagaracollege.ca .
