DistancePlus: Mail Delivery Service

While the university teaches remotely, we are offering a Canada-wide mail delivery service. Before processing a mail delivery request, we will contact you via your institutional email address. Depending on your format preference (i.e. ebook vs print) and timeframe, we may purchase the item as an eBook, or digitize portions permissible under the Canadian Copyright Act, and Librarians may work with students to determine if alternate online sources could be suitable

Please be advised that shipping times are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and are longer than normal. Depending on where you are located, it may take weeks for items to arrive and our Contact-less Pickup service will provide a much faster option. If you require immediate assistance, please contact us, and Librarians will assist you with locating suitable online resources.

All current students, faculty and staff may qualify for our mail delivery service if:

  • they currently reside in Canada
  • they are more than a 45-minute drive from our Corner Brook and St. John’s campuses, and/or are unable to come to campus for Contact-less Pickup of library materials
  • the library does not have an online version or is unable to obtain an online version
  • they require more than a single chapter or 10% of a book
  • no alternative online sources are suitable
