Library Study Rooms

Due to the public health emergency declared by the Alberta government, the study rooms are currently available for single person use only. The rooms will return to group study (minimum of 2 people) when these health measures are removed.

The Keyano Library has two study rooms available for students to reserve in groups of 2 to 8 people. Please review the Terms and Conditions prior to booking a study room. 

By booking a Library study room, you and your group are agreeing to the Study Room Terms and Conditions as posted here.

The following resources are available to help you with assignments.

  • Use keyword and search strategies
  • Evaluate sources
  • Understand citation styles (APA, Chicago, MLA, or IEEE)

Sessions are typically available Monday to Friday, beginning at 8:30 a.m. The last appointment of the day begins at 4:00 p.m. Appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes in length. Please provide at least 24 hours advance notice when booking your session.

To schedule a session, please fill out the Book a Librarian appointment page. The Librarian will contact you to confirm your appointment.

Subject Guides

Our Subject Guides are a great starting point for beginning your research project. The subject guides provide useful resources in over twenty different subject areas. Each guide includes suggested resources on finding relevant sources or information for your research and how to use the right citation style for your discipline.

Library Instruction and Tours

Instructors can schedule a variety of library instructional sessions, including tours, for your students. We tailor the format and content of each session to the needs of the course and students. 

Library sessions can be booked year-round, including for evening and spring classes. Please provide two weeks' notice when requesting an instructional session. All tours require 48 hours' notice.

View the Library's instruction menu in the Faculty Library Guide for the list of sessions offered and for more information on booking a session. If you have any questions, email the Librarian.

Place Items on Reserve

Instructors can place items on reserve so they are easily accessible to the students in their courses. To place an item on reserve, complete the Place a Reserve form or see the Library Information Desk. Please allow two working days for reserve items to be available for borrowing.

Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER) are freely accessible and reusable materials in any medium for teaching, learning or research. OERs use open copyright licenses like Creative Commons to enable a creator to determine the level of openness for their resource.

Types of OER materials include courses, textbooks, lesson plans, videos, and images. More information regarding OERs is available in the Open Educational Resources Subject Guide.

Community Library Services

The Keyano Library welcomes all community members to access its collection and services.

  • Computers are available for use with the provision of government issued photo ID. 
  • Online resources and databases are freely accessible on-campus. 
  • Print materials can be borrowed with a TAL Card. 
  • Keyano is a TAL Card issuing Library. Community members without a TAL Card can register for one at the Library's Information Desk. 

*Please note: due to limited space, the computers are available on a first-come first-serve basis, with Keyano students and library classes having top priority.
