The Mount Allison University Libraries & Archives is pleased to introduce and offer a "Books-by-Mail" service to members of the Mount Allison University Community (students, faculty, and staff). Please note that this service is being offered in the Red, Orange, and Yellow phases of recovery.
Log-in to your Novanet library account. Locate a circulating item in the Novanet catalogue, and click the “Place a Hold” button. Follow the prompts.
From the library homepage, submit an online request for an MTA library owned item via our Library-to-Go service. Please include as much bibliographic information about the item as possible (i.e. Title, Author, Call number, etc.)
Item(s) will be retrieved by Access Services staff and mailed directly to you.
NOTE: Please be sure to include your current address (the address to which you would like the library to mail the item) when placing your requests.
To qualify, you need to reside within the Atlantic Provinces region (NB, NS, PE, NL). If you are a current Mount A student, but live outside of the Atlantic Provinces and require library resources, please contact the Access Services department (firstname.lastname@example.org) as we’re dealing with these requests on a case-by-case basis.
Packages are typically in the mail within 1-2 business days. How long it takes to arrive depends on the postal system and where you live.
The service is provided at no charge. Return postage is provided, so do not discard the package your request comes in or the return label that is included with the item itself.
Loans will not be provided on an indefinite basis. Term loans will be granted with the understanding that items could potentially be recalled if another patrons wishes to borrow the item.
This should not be necessary as Library staff take all necessary precautions and observe all current COVID-related safety protocols when retrieving, processing and packaging your item(s) for shipment.
Please contact the Access Services desk (email@example.com) for more details or if you have questions.
