As a student attending the University of Calgary, you have access to the books, journals and online resources of a major research institution. Your subject librarians are available for research assistance as well.
Your University of Calgary ONEcard is your library card, and gives students the following privileges:
You can borrow books for a two-week loan period (for books with a Definite Loan Period) by using a UniCard.
You qualify for online access to library resources if you are enrolled in a course of 10 hours or longer. This applies to both classroom and online courses. Your online library access is available to you for the duration of the semester in which your Continuing Education course runs.
When prompted for a login to access library resources, please use your 8-digit UCID and MyContEd password.
You can also call Continuing Education for help (403-220-2866 or 1-866-220-4992) during regular office hours (Mon - Fri, 8:30 am - 4 pm).
For after-hours help with online library access, please connect with the UCIT Support Centre.
Students enrolled in distance education may use the Document Delivery Request Form to request books or journal articles. Items will be sent to you at no cost. Books include a postage paid label to return material to us. Ensure that you return materials by the posted due date. Journal articles are yours to keep. Please view our library connection policies.
Before making a request, check if the full text of the article is online. The Citation Linker can take you directly to the full text of an article if it's available from one of our resources.
Like any other student, distance education students can place a hold on library books.
When you receive an email saying that your hold is available, reply and ask for the book to be delivered.
