The Quiet Room (no talking) is an enclosed room that you enter from the mezzanine level of the library. Groups may only work in the Group study rooms, but brief, quiet discussions may occur throughout the library. We ask that you be considerate of others working around you. Loud, noisy behavior and cell phones are never acceptable. Please put your cell phone on vibrate and leave the library to make or take calls that involve lengthy discussions.
Public Workstations – most public workstations provide access to the Library catalogue, library electronic resources, Microsoft Office and the Internet.
Interlibrary Loan and Borrowing from non-York libraries – Members of the York University community may borrow materials from other libraries via the York University Libraries Resource Sharing Dept using the RACER online interlibrary loan request service or via our Direct Borrowing at Other Universities Program. The exception is the University of Toronto which charges $20 for stack access and $225 for borrowing privileges (subsidized by York University).
The Bronfman Business Library provides a number of online guides to e-resources available in different subject areas including finance, corporate governance, and other areas.
