Borrowing From Other Universities

Residents of Nova Scotia who are registered patrons at any library in Nova Scotia are able to borrow from any other library within the province through the Borrow Anywhere, Return Anywhere (BARA) program.  Please inquire at your local public or university library for more information.

Outside of Nova Scotia, in-person borrowing privileges at most other universities in Canada may be obtained with a CAUL card, available from the Access Services department of the Angus L. Macdonald Library or by indicating yes below.

Choose the yes option above only if you reside outside of Nova Scotia or plan to travel to other provinces and require in-person borrowing privileges from another university in Canada.
