Loan services

Audiovisual (including Board Games and Video Games)

University of Toronto faculty, students and staff holding valid library cards may borrow materials from the collection. The loan period is two nights with the possibility of up to 3 renewals* if no other hold/reservation exists.  Media Commons items are never due on weekends and restrictions may apply to certain titles. Extended loan periods may be arranged if a program is needed for multiple classroom screenings. Alumni, Research Reader and Direct Borrower cardholders also qualify for home/external use.  Please note: OISE Alumni, Associate and UTS Student cards do NOT have borrowing privileges.

*Renewals are based on privileges extended to each card classification. Current Faculty, Staff, Graduate and Undergraduate students qualify for three renewals.


Most researchers use the on-site microform scanners, but those with a valid TCard may borrow materials outside Media Commons. The regular loan period is two weeks.  Some restrictions may apply.
