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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Toll free in North America (8:30 AM-8:30 PM, Pacific Time): 1-800-788-8028 and ask to be put through to the Library
