Students, faculty and staff can borrow books, journals and kits from the CRC using their MSVU ID card validated at the Mount Library main desk. Most loan periods are 21 days, with term loans for faculty and graduate students. Off-campus borrowers can request borrowing privileges at the Mount Library main desk and borrow up to 10 items.

Fines are NOT applied for items returned late, but there are replacement fees for lost items.

Tablets, bots, green screens, assistive devices, VR headsets, and various technologies can also be borrowed from the CRC (limited to Education and Child and Youth Study students). See staff for details.

Nova Scotia's  "Borrow Anywhere, Return Anywhere" policy allows borrowers to return their items to any participating public, university or community college library in the province.
