Members of the public are welcome to access and use the following library resources:
*Access is permitted to electronic books, journals, and most Saint Mary's research databases in-person on designated "guest" computers within the Library. Off-campus access to Saint Mary's electronic materials and research databases is restricted to currently registered Saint Mary's University students, faculty, and staff.
Adult members of the public are eligible for an off-campus borrower's card. As part of Nova Scotia's Borrow Anywhere Return Anywhere (BARA) policy, members of the public (Nova Scotia residents 19 or older) may use their current library card from any university library, community college library or public library from across the province to borrow materials from the Patrick Power Library.
If you need an off-campus borrower's card, you can obtain one at the Library's Circulation Desk. In most cases, you need only to present an official photo ID that includes proof of Nova Scotia residence, such as a driver's license, for privileges to be granted right away.
