Online Students

Library staff is available during all hours of operation and will be happy to help students with their questions. For more in-depth research questions it is best to contact the library between 8:30am and 4:00pm weekdays, when a professional librarian will be onsite. 

Once the registration procedures are complete, students should contact the library in order to register and set up their library account. (The library’s software is independent of that in the Registrar’s office.) In order to do this you can either come in person, or contact the library via email ( or phone (403.410.2946). In either case you will need your Student ID number, your Ambrose student email address plus complete contact information.

The Ambrose Library website will be your access point for library hours, general library information and database access as well as your link to the Catalogue Search page, which also includes a link to your library account (click My Account on the gold horizontal bar). You do not need passwords to access the catalogue search page, but will need your Student ID plus PIN (last 4 digits of your phone number) to access your student account and your Student ID plus PIN (your postal code) to access the databases.

For students who live outside the Calgary catchment area we can mail research materials via Canada Post. This service will include a limit of 5/10 books at a time and will NOT include any textbooks or reserve titles.
