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. 

The Ambrose Library website will be your access point for library hours, general library information and database access. You can also access the Catalogue Search, and your library account (click the My Library Account button on the main library page). You do not need passwords to access the catalogue search, but will need your Ambrose credentials to access your student account and your Ambrose email 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.
