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.

Education - SMART Boards

This is a quick 'Getting Started' guide for interactive displays with a focus on SMART Technologies products that are commonly found in Alberta K-12 schools.


A SMART Board is an example of an interactive whiteboard (IWB). Interactive whiteboards combine:

  • a large video display
  • a whiteboard (to write on digitally)
  • a touch screen to navigate what is displayed

Use your fingers to scroll and zoom. Use the pens (or your fingers) to add comments to displayed content or collaborate with students to create content.

The Doucette Library has two SMART Boards for education students to use. There is one located in the instructional area and one located in a collaboration room. Please email if you would like to book the collaboration room for SMART Board practice.
