The University of Toronto has announced that effective October 1, 2009 University of Toronto Libraries will start charging Research Reader fees to Direct Borrowers (i.e. faculty and graduate students from other Canadian universities).
The charge will be $200 per year or $130 for 6 months or $75 for 3 months. Seniors may pay $95 for 12 months.
Browsing the collections in Robarts Library will require a Stack Pass. The charge for the pass is $20 and is effective for seven days.
In order to mitigate the impact of this new fee, York University Libraries will provide the interlibrary loans services necessary to ensure York students and faculty are successful in their academic pursuits. I also encourage graduate students and faculty to notify York University Libraries of monograph titles that they plan to use extensively for their research and studies so that the Libraries might consider purchasing a copy or copies for York’s collection. Each department, school and faculty at York has a liaison librarian who welcomes your suggestions for acquiring additional materials regardless of publication date. The Libraries routinely order from a number of out-of-print suppliers.
You may also submit information on any recommended item for purchase using an online form.

Starting today, currently registered York graduate students can access their free printing quota at printers in any of the York University Libraries. Graduate students may use 3000 pages in black and white or the equivalent value for colour printing.
When authenticating at a print release workstation graduate students will have the choice of printing from their quota or printing using available YU-card funds.
Please note the quota does not apply to photocopying.
For questions regarding your free printing quota contact the UIT (University Information Technology) Help Desk : email@example.com
