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.

Information About the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Law Guide

This guide is designed to provide practical help to get you started in finding EIA filings, documents, and processes to assist with your environmental impact assessment law assignments. It will also suggest appropriate websites and library resources to help with your research.

Finding Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Documents

The EIA process and finding related documents can be challenging. It often requires working through multiple administrative tribunals, bodies, and organizations across different jurisdictions. Relevance to your project will be determined by the location, type of project, and governing laws and regulations of the jurisdiction. For example, pipelines can run through several provinces and countries where each province and country will have individual rules, consultation requirements, and administrative bodies to review before making an EIA application.

Each body clearly lays out their authority, jurisdiction, and processes on their website.
