  • There will be a change to the Library's hours for the Fall semester. The Library won't be open on Sundays. We have been open Sundays as a pilot program and we're evaluating how we can best serve you. Your feedback is important to us. Soon we'll be doing a survey to get your input.

    Even though our doors won't be open on Sundays, there are lots of library services that are available 7 days a week including:

  • The Library will be closed this long weekend and open for the fall semester at 8am on Tuesday, September 7th.

  • While QR codes have been used in Japan since the mid 90s, only recnetly you can see them in use in Canada. You can see these two-dimensional black and white square codes in advertising, print media, movies, video games and in manufacturing. We're experimenting with using QR codes in the Library to connect our physical and virtual collections. While the Library has lots of great books, DVDs and magazines, we also subscribe to many journal article databases, and have useful information on our website.

  • Some of the Emily Carr Library services are hosted on servers at Simon Fraser University.

    This Sunday, August 29th between midnight and 6am there will be a scheduled outage to repair the optical fibre connection.
