Library Services

University nuhelot’įne thaiyots’į nistameyimâkanak Blue Quills Library, located in the north wing of the university, contains over 10,000 catalogued books and numerous reference books, journals, periodicals, vertical file, videos and magazines. All catalogued books are maintained in a database system and students have access to printed subject/author/title indexes. Students can borrow books from the library for a two-week period.

Blue Quills is in the process of creating a historical archival centre which is located in the library. This data collection will take years of continued work as most information is being converted to digital form for all to enjoy. We invite anyone who has information on Blue Quills to please share their information such as written documents, yearbooks, pictures, news articles etc., if at least, to allow us to document the original information for digital conversion.

Student/instructors have access to videos, which they can watch at their convenience.
Library services also include laminating, photocopying, scanning, testing for skills appraisals for university programs and University/College Entrance Preparation program. There is a whole section of native studies books and native children story books. The library is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.

Additional learning resources have been updated to facilitate the learning experience. For instance, students have access to the Internet and WIFI to assist them academically. Students who are registered with Athabasca University, the University of Alberta and University of Calgary also have access to inter-library loans, e-books, e-journals etc. We offer a seminar to students to increase their skills to do on-line research.
