I'm not registered this semester. Can I still borrow books and access databases and ejournals from off campus?

Your library privileges automatically expire when your registration lapses, however, if you are an Undergraduate student you may request Semester Off privileges at the Circulation/Loans desk in the Library to have your card validated for a semester in which you are not registered (for example, if you take the Summer term off and plan to return in the Fall). This privilege is limited to one semester.

This extended privileges card allows you to borrow library materials and provides you with access to restricted electronic Library resources such as databases and electronic journals from outside the Library.

Please note that access to interlibrary loan privileges i.e. requesting books and journal article from non-SFU Libraries, is not included. When you are once again registered as a student after your semester off, your interlibrary loan privileges will be restored.

Semester Off privileges are not available to Graduate students.
