When using Nipissing Search the results you see include materials available to you through our partner universities in Ontario.

You are able to request these items directly through Nipissing Search. If another university has it available they will ship it for free to the Harris Learning Library (or any of our partner universities) to be picked up by you. Learn more about this process on our How to Request Items From Another Library guide
