This is NOT for downloading the entire ebook in PDFs, but it is a feature to check out the ebook for offline viewing. You will be directed to download a program called, Adobe Digital Editions, for viewing/browsing the ebook.
Mobile/tablet app users can now read eBooks on their handheld device, without downloading Adobe Digital Editions.
We have different options to use the ebooks based on the concurrent user level we have for each title, shown on the ebook record page on the Library OneSearch result page. See an example below.

There are no overdue fines on most items from the collection (books and media.) However, you will be prevented from placing holds or borrowing material until the overdue material is returned or renewed.
For overdue items from Course Reserves, the fee for keeping the material is $1/hour.
For items that have been recalled and not returned by the recall due date, the fee for keeping the material is $1/day.
Alloway Library does not collect overdue fees under $1 per item, and the maximum fee per item is $25.
If you have been charged for lost material, you can reduce your debt by returning the material.
Certainly. Note, however, that regular due dates apply. While you can renew material by telephone at 604-513-2023, or online through your account, you are responsible to get it back to us safely and on time.
No. Print journals are for in-library use only. Note, however, if you are a distance student, we will provide you with copies of articles from print journals within the limits of fair dealing. Contact the Research Help Desk for more information.
Because Course Reserve items are time sensitive, hand them to one of the people working at the Borrower Services counter, rather than putting them through the slot for regular book returns. If the library is closed, you can return the material to the After Hours Return slot at the front entry to the library.
