The Library has just launched a new service, Ship-To-Me. This service allows the students, faculty and staff of VCC to have books sent to their home instead of coming on campus to pick them up. We recognize that these are challenging times for everyone, and not everyone is able to come to school to pick up the print materials that they would like to borrow from the library. We respect that not everyone is able to use the takeout service for various reasons, and we would like to assist those who are unable to come see us in person.
While placing a hold on a book, patrons can select the ship-to-me option instead of selecting a campus to pick up the items. We will then send the print material to the patron at no cost to them.
As this is a new service, we appreciate your patience with us. Thank you!
To place a Ship-To-Me order, please follow these steps:
For assistance please email firstname.lastname@example.org
After you have placed your Ship-To-Me you will:
Does Ship-To-Me cost anything?
It's a free service!
Is it faster to have the books shipped to me, or is faster if I just come in pick the book up myself?
It's definitely faster if you use our Takeout Service and pick up the book yourself. Shipping is time and labour intensive. Also, we are using Canada Post to ship to you. Definitely not Amazon fast!
Where do you ship to?
We ship to anywhere in BC! Unfortunately we are unable to ship to anywhere outside of BC.
How many books can I request?
You can borrow up to 5 books in one day. If you need more books than that, you will have to wait until the next day to request them.
How long can I borrow the books for?
All loans are for one month. If this is a Course Reserve you can have it for the semester. If it's a regular book, it can be renewed for up to 3 times. There are no renewals for Reserves.
