Library Card Choices

Connecting to Electronic Resources

  • Summon Discovery
    Search for books, videos, CDs, DVDs, journal titles, government documents and more (No full text available off campus)
  • Electronic Resources
    • On Campus: Complete collection of electronic indexes and databases, ejournals, ebooks, government documents, reference tools and more
    • Off Campus: Access some free databases available via the Web—most of which are abstracts/indexes and not full text. Most subscription resources (i.e., electronic journals, ebooks, databases, and indexes) are restricted to current U of L students, faculty, and staff. Alumni licenses to these resources are either not available or prohibitively expensive.
    • Other Possibilities: Individuals may be able to obtain access to a variety of electronic products via their local public library. It is also possible to visit any academic library that is accessible to the public. Most allow "walk-in" traffic to search any of their resources on site via publicly accessible microcomputers.

Fines Payment

All outstanding fines must be paid in full before library privileges are updated. Fines payment may be made by:

  • visiting the Library Services Desk on Level 10
  • mailing a cheque to:
    Library Services Desk
    University of Lethbridge Library
    4401 University Drive
    Lethbridge, AB  T1K 3M4
    (Please make cheque payable to the University of Lethbridge)
