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.
