  • DVDs, VHS tapes, and feature films supporting.
  • Online streamed videos.
  • Audiobooks and sound recordings.
  • Family reading collection including children's picture and chapter books, audiobooks and DVDs.
  • Ebook readers preloaded with more than 30 ebooks (new!).

The NorQuest Library's collection supports its students in their studies with resources in a variety of formats.  The Library also collects materials for the benefit of faculty, applied research, and the broader literacy needs of the student body and their families.

Your liaison librarian can provide you with more detailed information about the library's print and electronic materials, inlcuding online and audiovisual items.


To ensure equitable access to key resources, including textbooks, the Library manages heavily-used materials using the "reserve" system.

Reserve items:

  • Identified by, and/or supplied by instructors for the purpose of being "on reserve"
  • Kept securely at the circulation desk
  • Borrowed for up to 2 hours
  • In-library use only

If you are instructor and want to place textbooks or required readings on reserve, please contact

Purchase Requests

Acquisitions are made on the basis of proposed use, reasonable expectation of long-term suitability, and course relevance.
