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.
