We lend material from Frost, Scott, Steacie, Bronfman and Osgoode Libraries.
York University Libraries does not provide interlibrary loan service to members of the public. We encourage these patrons to come to the library in person, or to consult the interlibrary loan service at their local public library.
We will lend for 3-6 weeks (depending on circumstances) from date of receipt. Renewals may be permitted. Requests for reference and rare books are considered individually and the loan period may be shorter with use restricted to library only. We do not lend eBooks. All loans are subject to recall.
We will not lend periodicals, with the following exceptions: we will lend annuals which usually circulate and we will lend microfilmed periodicals more than ten years old. Requests for newspapers on microfilm will be considered individually.
If we hold a circulating hard copy, we will lend. Copies of York theses may be purchased from ProQuest Dissertations & Theses.
Our film and video collection is in high demand for classroom use and is not available for interlibrary loan. Audio materials are also non-circulating.
