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.

  • General orientation to architecture and design collections and services
  • Assignments and research papers
  • Thesis and research literature review assistance
  • Electronic databases, including identifying, accessing, searching, and retrieving fulltext articles and high-resolution images, e.g.:
    • Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals
    • ARTstor
  • Book a LCR instruction class for your students and/or have an online handout prepared for a specific architecture or design course or assigment
