Borrowing Information for Staff

The library has a collection of texts, recommended resources, and other materials, to support study and teaching at SAE and Qantm. Staff and students are welcome to browse, borrow materials, and use the library as a quiet study space.


  • Staff may borrow 8 items at a time
  • Certain books and readings, which are in high demand, can be assigned a shorter loan period such as 2 day or "In House" use. These items are normally housed on a separate set of shelves. Refer to the section on Course Reserve for more information.
