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.

Here is a list of new books and DVDs with their call numbers. Click on each title to see if it's available. You can place a hold on items that are checked out and you will be receive an email when they are available for pickup.
In the Library, our new books are displayed by the current issues of magazines and journals.
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.
