How do I find Course Reserves and Short Loans?

Due to technical challenges specific to Canadore College with the Omni migration, Canadore library users will experience difficulty accessing services linked with library accounts, primarily renewals and library holds.

We are working with Canadore College to resolve the issue. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for understanding.


Required and supplemental readings for courses are often found in the Reserves collection, located behind the Circulation Desk. Materials are placed in this collection by faculty request. Library staff may also reduce loan periods for high-demand items to ensure that everyone has access to them. This is done by placing items either on Reserve or on Short Loan. 


There are two different loan periods for high-demand materials:

3-Hour Reserves

  • Held at the Circulation Desk
  • DVDs and photocopies
  • Other high demand materials
  • Professor copies
  • $1.00 per hour - overdue fines

2-Day Short Loans

  • Identified as short loan items with a pink label on the spine of the book
  • $2.00 per day - overdue fines

Note that these items have higher fines and cannot be renewed.
