Faculty and staff have special borrowing privileges at Capilano University Library. Please remember that our small physical collection is used by everyone in our community - return materials as soon as you are finished using them.

Borrowed items can be returned to:

Faculty Library Accounts

All faculty and staff are automatically downloaded into our Library system and assigned a Library account.

You library account gives you access to borrowing privileges for items in the Library collection. You can log in to My Library to check on due dates, renew items or place holds. 

For off-campus access to online resources, you will need to log in with your CapU network credentials - the same way you log into a workstation on campus.

Your CapCard Photo ID is your Library card. It is the responsibility of borrowers to immediately notify the CapCard Centre of a lost card or change of address. Borrowing privileges may be available at other BC post-secondary libraries - pick up your reciprocal borrowing card at the Library Services desk. Reciprocal borrowing priviledges may be suspended due to COVID. Please check with the lending library to see if they are alowing reciprocal borrowing at this time.

Retired Faculty and Staff

Retired faculty and staff may continue to borrow books and media from CapU Library as a Community Borrower, free of charge. Due to licensing restrictions, off-campus use of electronic resources is not permitted. Visit the Library Services desk to set up your account.
