Using the Digital Collection

  • You can access an amazing online collection of eBooks, articles, audiobooks, videos, and more! Get in touch if you have any difficulties logging in, or check out the Online & Distance Learning guide, which has detailed information about using our services, including: 
  • eBooks
  • Logging-in to access resources (off-campus)
  • Need books, articles, or other materials not available at the library? You have a couple options: 
  • Check Google Scholar to see if the article is freely available, or
  • Request the item through interlibrary loan.
    • Please note that we will do our best to fill your request, but many libraries are not currently loaning items via interlibrary loan due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We thank you for your understanding. 

Reserve Collection Scan on Demand Service

  • The Reserve Collection includes most required textbooks for courses offered at NorQuest College. If you need a small portion of a textbook required for your course, the library can send you a scanned PDF of up to 1 chapter or article from the book. Requests are filled within 24 - 48 hours, Monday - Thursday. Fill out the request form with as much information as possible and a library staff member will respond as soon as your request is ready.
