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.

Covid-19: Support for Graduate Students

Your subject librarian can be a lifeline during these times.  We can set up remote consultations via Zoom to ensure you have what you need.  To find your librarian, you can use the subject drop-down.

If you can’t find your librarian, you can use this online form and we will connect with you. 

Being a graduate student can be stressful even without a global pandemic. This guide was created to help you navigate some of the resources and services available to you to help you achieve your academic goals.  For further information on how LCR is handling the changing information environment during these times, please see our Covid-19 updates page

Free Resources During the Pandemic LibGuide: Many publishers are opening up access during these times.  Please visit this page for a list of resources that you can access.  This page will be updated as resources are added.

We also have many guides that can help you navigate our resources.  You can narrow by subject or do a keyword search for specific tools and resources.
