UM Libraries Staff Working From Home: Supporting Public Service

Information about virtual reference can be found on the Ask Us Staff Guide

Scanning Service

The UML began offering a scanning service on June 17th to provide "access" to material in our physical collections, with some staff on campus in rotations to provide support for retrieving and scanning.

We’ll scan it for you! is a guide for the UM community to request material for scanning and specifies the details of what can be requested and instructions for making a request.

Document Delivery

Document Delivery / ILL

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. We will not be returning any materials we presently have on loan and ask that materials not be sent back to us at this time. Any loans currently out are being automatically renewed by doc del staff.

Staff will be working from home to process requests for electronic resources only. Our turnaround time may be slower than usual.

Any questions should be directed to and not to individual staff members.

Holds, Renewals, Reserve, Recalls


With the hold function tuned off in Primo, this means no one will be allowed to place holds on any of the print material.


Items are being bulk renewed until Aug 21, 2020. Short term loans are being bulk renewed until Apr 30, 2020. [This takes time]
