Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where can I make photocopies of materials in the library?
A: The reproduction alcove is located on the second floor of the Robson building, and is where you can make photocopies. Not all of our materials can be checked out. For example, magazines and reference books may only be used within the library. In instances like these, you can make photocopies for a small per-copy fee.
Q: I need a book or an article that the library doesn't have.
A: Many materials that are not in the Robson Library collection can be borrowed via interlibrary loan. Learn more...
