Welcome (or welcome back) to Selkirk College Library for the Fall 2014 semester.
We are here to serve students, faculty, staff and community members. On a practical basis, services we provide include borrowing of books, DVDs, serials(journals), a limited range of media items; access to online research databases, streaming videos, ebooks, interlibrary loans, course reserves, and textbooks for Adult Basic Education courses.
There are 3 group study rooms available, ask about booking them at the Main Desk. If you need assistance with writing essays, the Writing Centre is located in the Library, along with the Learning Success Centre and the Math tutor. Research assistance is available both online and in person, just ask at the Main Desk. There is also a computer lab and free wifi for your use within this space.
You can get your student ID/Library card made here, do some photocopying, or take it easy in some of our lounge-style sofas. You can even study or read a book or magazine.
On a philosophical level, libraries in general promote values such as intellectual freedom, access to information for all, confidentiality and privacy, education and lifelong learning, the preservation of information, and public service. So come to our Library and take advantage of what we have to offer you!
