Emily Carr University Library

The Library and Archives enables research, learning, and innovation by providing unique collections, a welcoming dynamic space, responsive services and professional knowledgeable staff.
  • AskAway, the chat reference service staffed by post-secondary librarians, is closed for the summer. Fall service will start on September 20th. If you require reference or research help, please contact a librarian (http://www.ecuad.ca/library/contact/ask) or come into the Library.

  • We recently received a large donation of used books, exhibition catalogs, and magazines about Canadian art. Items that we already had in our collection will be sold at at prices ranging from 50 cents to $10.

    Books go on sale Thursday, August 5th at 10am. Money raised will go back into our collections budget.

  • The Library's special collections includes some amazing examples of art, design, architecture, and culture magazines dating back to the 1940s. Some of the titles on display are magazines about art, some are works of art in and of themselves and some are more scholarly in their approach.

  • As print publishing continues to thrive in the magazine/journal world, so too does the library's print collection!

    The librarians at Emily Carr continue to collect a selection of sample journals for you to peruse on display with the current journals. There is room at the back of  each sample copy for you to leave your comments. We continue to develop our collection based on the feedback we receive from you—our users—so please come in and share your thoughts.

    Some recent samples on display include:

    What do you like about our library?

  • The following databases will not be available through our library after July 31st: Masterfile, Novelist, Canadian Reference Centre, and Consumer Health Complete. We had subscriptions to these databases as part of package deal through a consortium of post-secondary libraries.

  • "It's a laptop with access to bucket loads of library databases. Look again! The laptop is now a celestial sandwich here in the snack zone."

    While this was not shot in our Library, we too have bucket loads of library databases, and you are welcome to eat and drink here.
