Library: McMaster & Interlibrary Loans

McMaster Access & Inter-library Loans

McMaster Library Access

Redeemer faculty members (full-time) have free access to McMaster ($50 for part-time faculty). As an external borrower, you will be allowed to borrow print books only (no electronic resources), until August of the academic year.  However you must annually see Marlene Power or Tricia Kok in the Redeemer Library for a McMaster External Borrower Application Form before going to McMaster.  For further information (McMaster Library catalogue, map and directions), go to McMaster External Borrower Card.

Inter-library Loans

The library has access to the holdings of major libraries across North America, which can be searched from your home.  Go to Books and articles that are not available at Redeemer may be requested, and we will try to obtain copies for you. Please allow two weeks for delivery. We cannot order books from McMaster via inter-library loan. However, if a book or article is not available in our library or McMaster’s, we can get it for you from another library at no charge to full-time faculty. (Students are charged up to $5). You can ask one of the librarians (Marlene Power or Patricia Kok), to find books and articles in libraries around the world.  Retired faculty are allowed 5 free ILL requests; for subsequent requests they will be charged the full cost.  For more information, go to Inter-library Loans.
