The library isn’t just for students – we offer a variety of services to support your teaching and research goals. We can assist you with everything from reserving items for your class to purchasing new materials to adding links on Canvas.

Circulation services

It’s vital to have the right materials for your courses or research. Circulation services can make that happen. Use our services to:

  • place high-demand items on reserve for your students
  • sign out materials
  • access Scantron materials and assistance

If you can’t find what you are looking for, fill out an interlibrary loan request. We can obtain books, journal articles, DVDs and more from other libraries for you.

The Alberta Library Card

The Alberta Library is a province-wide consortium aimed at providing Albertans with access to materials and information resources in all libraries without additional registration fees. Visit us at the Circulation Desk to obtain your card.

Collection development

We purchase supplemental materials for courses offered at the college. You can request appropriate books, DVDs and CDs for the library collection using our online order forms. For further information on selecting resources, feel free to call us at ext. 3355 or visit us (CE1340).

Information services

Through information services, you can schedule library events and research skills sessions tailored to your class. We offer a variety of sessions, including scavenger hunts and customized single or multiple face-to-face or drop-in instructional sessions.
