We'll be BACK on site, but NOT just yet!

Check this site regularly for updates on what onsite services we are restoring.

LCR is part of the overall University of Calgary re-entry strategy. We are working to restore some essential services as quickly as possible in a way that is safe for you - our users- and our staff and in the context of the overall campus re-entry plan. We will continue to offer our suite of online services and will also be expanding access to online books and resources. Virtual service hours today: 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Physical locations remain closed. You can return your books to the exterior book drop on the East side of the TFDL. More information on the Covid 19 page.

Technology skill and young people

"...there is a  widespread popular belief that young people who have been raised int he digital age have a natural level of comfort and ability with technology.  this belief is beginning to be debunked by research.  Studies that measure information literacy skills, for example demonstrate that not all young people have an affinity for technology and that comfort with technology does not necessarily correlate with skill level.  Likewise, there is a well-documented concern with young adults' level of achievement in content areas such as science, technology, engineering, and math that are needed to fuel the future economy."  -- from: Young Adult Resources Today by Don Latham and Melissa Gross (2014) p.45
