1. How can distance learners borrow resources?

Borrowing resources

You can use your library barcode to login to the Holland College Library's online catalogue at  http://library.hollandc.pe.ca/ . Here you can request books, and renew books that you have signed out. You may borrow up to six items at a time from us, and you may renew your loans up to five times, provided there are no pending requests for the items.

Out-of-province learners

We will ship requested items to out-of-province borrowers via Canada Post, enclosing a postage-free return label.  Please email library staff at library@hollandcollege.com to request material and include your full mailing address and distance education program you are enrolled in as well as detailed information about the book(s) including author, title, year and call number. The loan period for out-of-province distance learners is longer than normal (usually about one month), in order to compensate for shipment times. Although we do not charge late fees for overdue items, you will be charged for replacement of any materials that are lost or damaged.

In-province learners

If you are studying in-province, we will ship items to your nearest Library branch. When you request a book and you are studying in-province, select the library where you will pick up the book.  You will be notified by email when it is ready for pickup.

If you have any trouble requesting material from the online catalogue, please contact Holland College Library Services at library@hollandcollege.com
