Library Book Request and Delivery Service

Book Request and Delivery Service (BRADS) provides current students, faculty, and staff access to books from the print library collection without having to visit the library in-person.

Offered by the Humber and University of Guelph-Humber libraries, this service is available at no charge to support studying and teaching needs for those who are studying/working remotely or unable to visit campus.

When available, print items can be shipped directly to library users within Canada at no cost. Library staff will also explore electronic ebook copies when requested.

To ensure fair and equitable access to textbooks in our collection, users are limited to borrowing two textbooks at any one time. There is no limit on items from the library's general collection.
