Your MUN Campus Card is your identification card, and also your library card. You must register with the Circulation Desk to obtain Library privileges and obtain your 4-digit PIN number. Your Campus Card is necessary to sign out and to renew material. Your PIN Number is needed for off-campus access to various databases and e-journals and "My Account" in the library catalogue.

NOTE: Be sure to update your Campus Card at the beginning of each semester to secure Library privileges.

Faculty and staff may borrow books for 4 months and journals for 1 week, except for the most current issues which do not circulate. Books can be renewed, unless someone else has put a HOLD on them. Books may be RECALLED 2 weeks after the initial check-out date if required by another patron. You will be notified by email and required to return the item. Books may be recalled IMMEDIATELY if needed for Reserve.

For more information, please enquire at the circulation desk about what is available to facilitate your teaching and research.

Film and Streaming Video Collections

The film collection is located behind the Circulation Desk and includes DVDs, and some VHS tapes and audio CDs. Visit our Film and Streaming Video Collections page for more information, and for lists of films by subject.

NEW: Our film collection now circulates. Users may borrow them for one week loan. Films can still be placed on course reserve upon request.

Reserves and E-Reserves (637-6200 ext. 6113)

Print material can be placed on short term loans, for 2 hours, 1 day, or 2 days. Links to online books, articles, and websites can be added as e-reserves. A RESERVE FORM should be filled out for each item. Faculty & staff can choose to complete the green paper Reserve forms available at the library, or the online Reserve form. Contact the Reserves Desk for more information or assistance.

In accordance with MUN's Fair Dealing Policy copies of a "short-excerpt" from a copyright-protected work may be placed on reserve, provided that in each case, no more of the work is copied than is required in order to achieve the allowable purpose.

A "short excerpt" means:

MUN Libraries will purchase copies of works not in their collections if they are needed for course reserve.

Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement

Where will your research take you? If you require borrowing privileges at other institutions in North America, you can get an ASIN Borrowing Card from our Library before you leave. Your ASIN card gives you borrowing privileges at participating libraries in Canada and the United States. For more information contact the Reference Desk at 637-6236 or drop by the Circulation desk to obtain your card.

Suggestion for Purchase (637-6236)

Faculty and staff recommendations for books, journals and audio-visual materials to be added to the collection are most welcome.
