Academic Staff Resources

This guide serves as a one-stop place to resources and library services for Faculty, Professional Officers and Research Staff

Getting Started


Items such as books, journals, and videos that are selected for use in a particular course are placed in the Course Reserve section of the Library. The loan period for these items are limited to allow more students to access the materials.  Please email the Library the course code, trimester period and estimated class size.

If a book or article you required is not in the Library Collection, send the Library your request and the Library will locate a copy for you. The Librarians are also able to assist with finding materials to make available to students in alternative ways. Arrange for a consultation with a librarian if you would like to know more.
