Slide Circulation

We have selected slide sets in binders in the VP Arts "reading" room - which circulate in the same manner as books.

We also have a selection of 20th/21st century slides of mainly Canadian, US and British Isles artists; the following procedures apply.

Slides may be borrowed by instructors for teaching and by students for student projects.

Slides borrowed from Visual & Performing Arts are to be returned to Visual & Performing Arts.

UofC Faculty:

  • Term loan; three terms per year with return/renewal dates: Dec. 22, April 30, and Aug. 30.


  • Three-day loan period with the possibility of placing a hold on required slides one week prior.

Instructors at other Calgary post-secondary educational institutions with a reciprocal borrowing card:

  • May borrow non-restricted slides for a two-week loan period.
