Welcome to The Parrott Centre, Loyalist College Library

COVID-19 and Interlibrary Loan Services

March 18, 2020, The Library and our lending partners at other college and university libraries across Ontario are currently closed.  Please note that we are unable to fulfill physical item requests at this time.  Feel free to email us for assistance in finding alternate online material.

March 16, 2020, Attention Students and Faculty: With the concerns around COVID-19, many college and university libraries in Ontario and across Canada are making temporary changes to their services. At this time, the Parrott Centre remains open and interlibrary loan services are available, but delays may occur due to closures or services disruptions at other libraries. We appreciate your patience.
