Search Tips

When using the search box to the right, use the drop-down menu if you want to specify a book, journal title, author, etc.

To truncate, use the dollar sign ($) E.g. chemi$ finds chemistry, chemical, chemicals, etc.

Borrow Books that We Don't Have

University of Calgary students, faculty and staff can request books, articles, and theses from another library, that the U of C Library doesn't have. This service is offered at no cost to students, faculty and staff. Provide the library with the information and our staff will look for the item for you: go to Interlibrary Loan
