Librarians & Staff: Document Delivery Team


In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Manitoba Libraries will be temporarily suspending the lending and borrowing of physical materials effective immediately. Staff will be working from home to process requests for electronic resources only. Our turnaround time may be slower than usual.

University of Manitoba Staff, Students and Faculty: Any loans University of Manitoba students, staff or faculty currently have out are being automatically renewed by our document delivery staff.

Other Institutions: We will not be returning any materials we presently have on loan from other institutions and ask that materials not be sent back to us at this time.

Any questions should be directed to
