Here are 3 tips:
1. Use your WatCard
... to log into the Library's online materials. Don't yet have a WatCard? Email the Centre for Extended Learning.
2. Book pickup and mail service
See the Book pickup page and find the option that works best for you.
3. Use libraries near you
If you live close to a public or university library, it may be faster to borrow items from there than to wait for a delivery from us.
Omni connects the libraries of 18 Ontario universities through one library catalogue. All students, staff and faculty at the University of Waterloo are Omni borrowers. You can order print materials and access digital and open source materials directly through the Omni catalogue.
If a book or article is not available in Omni, use the Interlibrary Loan tab to fill out a request form.
Look for the Virtual Browse carousel that appears at the bottom of every library book record. You can scroll left or right to see other books in the library system that might sit together on the same shelf.
Books in most academic libraries are organized by subject using the Library of Congress classification scheme. Each book is assigned a "call number" under a "subject heading."
Due to the interdisciplinary nature of Mennonite Studies, relevant books may be scattered throughout the entire library collection. Therefore, make sure you search the library catalogue in addition to browsing the shelves. However, shelf browsing is still worthwhile when looking for topic ideas, or finding books you may not have noticed in your catalogue search.
When browsing the shelves, please do not put books back on the shelf ! Bring books you are not signing out to the library desk. Staff will be happy to shelve them for you.
