No comments :

We have a library for that!
We have ten libraries covering all fields of study:
* Augustana Campus Library (Camrose)
* Bibliothèque Saint-Jean (Campus Saint-Jean)
* Bruce Peel Special Collections & Archives
* Cameron (Science and Technology)
* H.T. Coutts (Education and Physical Education)
* John W. Scott (Health Sciences)
* John A. Weir (Law)
* Rutherford (Humanities and Social Sciences)
* Winspear (Business)
* Research & Collections Resource Facility (RCRF)*

Feel free to visit and use any of these libraries, no matter your field of study. 

*Please note that RCRF is not accessible to the public. To access an item housed at RCRF, place a hold on it and have it sent to the NEOS library of your choice. 

Your ONECard is your library card 
How long can you borrow books? What are your borrowing privileges? Find out here

To avoid fines:
* Read your email notification of due dates
* Renew books online with My Account
* Return recalled books by their due date

Your ONECard can also be used to borrow materials from Edmonton Public Library by registering for the free L-PASS program. You can also use your ONECard to get a TAL Card to borrow from libraries across the province, including Camrose!

Search our collections online 
The University of Alberta Libraries is Canada's second largest research library, with a print and electronic collection exceeding 4.7 million titles and over 8.7 million volumes. In addition to using your ONECard to borrow books, as a member of the U of A community you can use your CCID and password to access more than 110,000 scholarly ejournals, over 1.3 million ebooks, and over 1,700 online databases to help you succeed with academic research projects. And if we don’t have what you need, request it via interlibrary loan.
