    Garry Morse will be reading his poetry, as part of the On Edge reading series which is also part of Jacqueline Turner's ENGL 200: Creative Writing Creative Writing Creative Writing class.

    We'll be shutting down the public computers at 6:45pm until the end of the night. You're still welcome to come in and study, though it might be a little noisier than usual. Our circulation desk will be open, so you can still come and check out materials.

  • What's your name? Where do you work?
    My name is Arlette Alcock. I work in the Emily Carr University of Art + Design Library at the circulation desk.  I am one of the people who check your books out to you.

    What do you like about the library?
    I enjoy the stories each borrower has to share: where they are from, their struggles and accomplishments, their art.

  • Stumped about which databases to use for your critical studies research paper? Unsure where to start for industrial design research?

    Our journal article databases are now grouped by subject area. There's also a link to Google Scholar. You can still browse the journal article databases alphabetically.

    You can access all of our journal article databases from home too. At the login screen use your email login and password.

    Access our databases through the pink library hotlinks: Article Databases. Or through eresources in the grey navigation menu: article indexes + databases. 

  • Riley Nicholson is one of the new Foundation students. Alexandra Phillips challenged foundation students in Visual Arts 3D to make a structure, using only toothpicks and hot glue, that would protect an egg from breaking. Only 5 structures protected the eggs from breaking upon impact. Riley's structure survived, but the egg didn't.

  • We're excited to have a bike pump, patch kit, and multitool to lend out. You can check these out on 2 hour loan at the Library circulation desk.

    Don't know how to change a flat? Don't know if your bike has a Presta or Schrader valve? Learn from the excellent video tutorials at the Bicycle Tutor.

    Thanks to the Emily Carr Wellness Committee for purchasing these!
