Borrowing: Borrow a document

Borrowing documents and scanning service

Borrowing : As a member of the Polytechnique Montréal community, you can borrow documents at the Library with your Polytechnique ID card. The majority of documents may be borrowed for a 30-day period. Please refer to the chart below for details regarding loan duration for every type of document.

  • Course reserves : Mandatory and recommended books are located in the Course reserves at the Library service counter.
    • Maximum of 3 items can be checked out for a loan period of 4 hours. No renewals.
    • New! Night loan : The Night loan is a new service that allows you to borrow items from the Course reserves and bring them home after Library hours.
      • This service can be requested at the Library service counter after 7 PM from Monday to Friday, or after 3 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.
      • Items need to be returned no later than 1 h after library opening hours the following day, before 9:30 AM Monday to Friday or before 11 AM Saturdays and Sundays.
      • Overdue fines are 0,50$ per item, every 15 minutes past the due time.
      • If a Course reserves item is brought back late once, a note is added to your account. The second time you bring a Course reserves item late, you lose the Night loans privilege for the duration of the term.
  • Board Games : Games are courtesy of the AEP and may only be borrowed by members of the Polytechnique community. See the full list of games on loan from the Library.
