Borrowing

Alumni of King’s University College, Western University, and other Affiliated University Colleges are entitled to borrowing privileges at the Cardinal Carter Library, as well as at the libraries of Brescia University College, Huron University College, St. Peter’s Seminary, and Western Libraries.

Alumni are permitted to borrow regular loan materials.  You are limited to 5 items at one time from the Cardinal Carter Library.  Items are signed out for 14 days, and may be renewed 3 times. Short-term loan items are not available as they are reserved to support the University’s teaching or research.  Alumni are not permitted extended loans, and cannot recall items on loan or use of the Interlibrary Loan Services.

Library material may be returned to the Cardinal Carter Library, any Affiliate University College Library, or any Western Libraries location.

For more information visit Western Libraries Alumni Borrowing Guide.
