Access to Print Collection

Curbside Pickup – Non-conjoint TST students, alumni, and extramural card holders only

The John W. Graham Library is providing curbside pickup services to its print collection to non-conjoint TST students, alumni, and extramural card holders. Curbside pickup will be available Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:45 p.m. Toronto School of Theology students pursuing non-conjoint degrees and patrons with extramural borrowing privileges must submit a request using our online form. Please continue reading for more information.

Please note that this service does not replace InfoExpress. If you use InfoExpress, e-mail the library directly at infoexpress.grahamlibrary@utoronto.ca.

Before submitting your request, please note the following restrictions to the curbside pickup service:

  • Only books owned by the Graham Library are available at this time. If you are looking for a book owned by a different campus library at U of T, please contact the owning library directly to learn about potential options for access.
  • There is a limit of 10 books per pickup. Patrons are encouraged to bring their own bags to transport books home. Bags will not be provided.
  • Once a patron is notified that their request has been fulfilled, they will have 2 weeks to retrieve their items from the library (if notified on the 1st of the month, patrons will have until the 14th to pick up). Requested material that is not picked up by the end of the 1 week period will be removed from the account and returned to the shelves.
