Because no one library can collect all resources required by its borrowers, there are services in place that allow you to borrow from other libraries at no charge. You can choose to request that articles be sent to you or books delivered to the Ryerson Library for pick up. You can also borrow directly from other libraries in person. All Ryerson students can also borrow from the Toronto Public Library even if you don’t live in Toronto.
