EBSCO Discovery Service
We are in the process of implementing EBSCO's Discovery Service (EDS) which provides users with access to most of our Library's collection (including our catalogue and databases) using a single search entry point.
The Search Me tab searches our Library catalogue (books, DVDs and videos) and most of our article databases. Once you have done your search, the right-hand side bar provides you with other suggested resources that are NOT included in the initial search.
The Articles tab allows users to initially limit their search to article databases only.
The Journals List tab allows users to determine if our Library has access to specific journals (full-text or in print).
Users accessing this service offsite will be prompted for the Library username and password.
Please contact our Library for assistance.
We are introducing a new service that enables borrowers to place a Request on most items in our Library's online catalogue. Items that are exempt from this service are DVDs/videos, Reference and Reserves.
Once you click on "Request Item", you will be prompted to enter your User ID and PIN. This is a specific User ID and PIN to our Library's lending system. If you do not already have this information, please give us a call (604.528.5599) or email us.
When placing a REQUEST, you can specify if you would like to pick the item up at our Library, or if you would like the item mailed to you via Canada Post.
If the item is currently checked out, your name will be placed in a queue. Once the item is available it will either be mailed to you, or you will be advised that it is ready for pick up.
To check the status of your items (Requests, Checkouts) please visit My Account, located on the top line of the Library's catalogue. You can also renew your materials on this site.
