Practicum Loans for Education Students

Education students qualify for longer loans while on practicum. Extended loans apply to items from the Curriculum Lab and the main Library stacks. Practicum students may check out up to 15 items from the Curriculum Lab and main Library stacks on extended loan. In addition students may borrow Curriculum Lab and Stacks items on regular loan (4 weeks) with no limit.

Non-Curriculum Lab CDs or DVDs are not available for extended loan but may be borrowed on regular loan (2 weeks) with no limit. If an extended loan item is no longer useful it may be exchanged for another.

If suitable items have already been checked out on the regular four week loan, loans may be extended for practicum by contacting the Library Service Desk in person or by phone (250.740.6330) or by emailing a detailed list to

Additional appropriate resources may be held by local public libraries, by practicum school libraries (check with teacher-librarians), or at District Resource Centres (check with sponsor-teachers).
