Copyright law in Canada provides all authors and creators with exclusive rights to reproduce, perform, and publish their work. (Government of Canada, 2022). However, copyright doesn't last forever and eventually does expire. When the term of copyright expires, the work enters the public domain and is then available for anyone to use and copy without permission or payment.

As we prepare for the launch of an exciting new service that will simplify borrowing between 16 Ontario University Libraries, we are making some changes to our loan policies.
Loan periods for most books in our collection will be changing to 120 days + unlimited renewals for all students, faculty and staff. This means that as long as you continue to renew your book online, users with active accounts can keep the book as long as you need.
