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.

English Comprehensive Exam Guide

Choose Your Own Adventure!

When you don't have time to read everything in preparation for comprehensive exams, reference material can help. It can offer overviews, and provide context for terms, theories, literary historical periods, and so on. This guide will give you a 'leg up' on exploring some of the library's reference resources that might make your exam preparation easier.

To navigate through the guide, use the left-hand menu. There you'll find a couple of sample searches, which demonstrate that like most research, using reference material is not a linear process. For each search there are three tabs:

  1. What's in databases?
  2. What's in ref?
  3. What's in print and ebooks?

 "Choosing your own adventure" underscores that these samples are just that: samples.
