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.

Metadata Services

High quality, customized metadata schemas form the core of many large-scale research initiatives

Using metadata standards and appropriate vocabularies to describe research projects, digital collections, and data resources improves their discoverability. Metadata can also provide key information for reproduction and management of information resources throughout their lifecycle. Consult with Metadata Services on how to identify and describe your research materials to maximize their reach.

We can help you:

  • Selecting appropriate metadata standards for your research projects
  • Creating standardized metadata and templates to ensure collaborators and other scholars can make use of your research.
  • Providing guidance on using controlled vocabularies to assist in uniform description of data, and improve information retrieval
  • Reviewing metadata creation for quality assurance
