Dal faculty and staff can request a Canadian University Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement (CURBA) card from Dal or UNBSJ. The request must be made in person at a library circulation desk. The card allows you to borrow from any Atlantic Canadian university library. Of particular interest would be access to the collections at UNBSJ and Université de Moncton, both of which have English-language medical collections. UNBSJ has almost 1000 medical books, with more arriving all the time!
