Citizen Help: Home

Welcome to our Citizen Users!

The University of Manitoba Libraries is pleased to offer an array of services to citizens. Although you can use materials in-library at any time, borrowing materials requires a $50 yearly fee and registration for a Citizen Borrower's library card.  Drop by any University of Manitoba library or contact the Libraries for further information.
