If you reside within British Columbia, you are able to borrow print books from any college and university library in BC; you will need to provide a valid RRU student ID and a piece of government identification to verify your address.

If you reside within Canada, but outside of British Columbia, you will need a COPPUL card to borrow a book directly from your local university. A COPPUL card allows RRU students, staff and faculty to borrow books free of charge from participating Canadian university collections.

You will need to have a valid student ID card.

To request a COPPUL card:

  • Visit the RRU Library front desk
  • Email ask@royalroads.libanswers.com to request a COPPUL card
  • Phone the library directly at (250) 391-2575 or call the University reception desk toll free at 1-800-788-8028 and ask to be transferred to the library.

You can also borrow books that are not in the RRU library collection through our interlibrary loan service.
