Facility Updates March 2021: The library has reviewed its risk assessment based on information from Northern Health Human Resources and the PHO. Starting March 31st, 2021 the following service updates are in effect:
Review the following to learn more about the library facility and services during COVID-19:
24/7 with your Swipe Card - Please make sure you have your card when you come and go, there will be no unlocked hours at this time.
Maximum 8 Library Patrons at any time
8am to 4pm
Using the Library
Food and drink are permitted but cleaning protocols should be followed for the safety of you and others.
Please use the “Printer Properties Dialog” or Copier Options to staple and hole punch (Instructions are posted behind the copier)
Maintain physical distancing of 2m when approaching library staff for help.
Print Books - Like NH Library, almost all healthcare/hospital and academic libraries across Canada closed to walk-in traffic early in the North American outbreak. This has significantly limited ILL access to both print books, and to photocopied chapters from books only available in print.
Articles - Articles in print journals located in other libraries are also limited at this time. Our ILL service system is connected to lenders in healthcare and academic health libraries throughout all of Canada and the United States. Yet, we have still experienced some limitations due to closures.
Please make any requests you need but be aware of the current state. We will notify of you any issues with ILL related to the above.
Eliminating, or reducing, visits to places where people gather for prolonged periods is the best way to prevent exposure.
If you can study or work from home, or request library items in advance and do a quick pick-up, then please do so!
We thank you for your support on minimizing non-essential access to the library facility at this time.
Questions about the physical library space during this time can be sent to to us via email.
