Books in the collection are housed separately and do not circulate. Staff retrieve materials from the stacks. Researchers are to identify their reason for using the collection when making appointments, and must provide photo identification before using its materials. All materials must be handled carefully, some with special attention, and researchers must agree to follow all rules set out for the protection of all materials in the collection.

Only pencils may be used in the reading room. Using pens or indelible pencils is prohibited. Food and beverages are prohibited in the reading room. Materials may not be marked, damaged or re-arranged.

Descriptive bibliographic entries for all materials in the collection are accessible in the college's on-line library catalogue. The collection is fully catalogued and available on-line at library.centennialcollege.ca or via the collection's own catalogue at centennial.ocls.ca/holocaustcollection.html.

All materials in the collection must be used in accordance with Canadian copyright law.
