All of the University's campus libraries hold collections of print books and periodicals, including academic journals, magazines, and newspapers.  

The majority of the print collections are available to Community Borrowers for loan, with the exception of certain resources. These exceptions include items which can only be accessed while in the libraries. 

The non-loaning resources include:

  •     Reference items
  •     Serials (journals, magazines, newspapers)
  •     Rare and special collections
  •     Reserve Collections
