Accessing Resources Off Campus

All members of the Ryerson community including distance education students who are currently enrolled in one or more courses can access the electronic databases and electronic books that we purchase or lease. If you are off campus, you will be prompted to input your unique Ryerson identification information (your my.ryerson user name and password).

In order to sign out printed books, you will need a Ryerson one card or a Ryerson library card.

If you live near a university located elsewhere in Canada, you may be able to borrow printed books under the provisions of the Canadian Universities Direct Borrowers Agreement.
