 Library resources

​If you work for a private employer, check the "post-secondary institution libraries" section for their Community and Alumni borrower info. You may be able to arrange walk-in access to your local academic library via a community or alumni borrower card, even if you are not currently affiliated with the institution. You generally won't be able to access off-campus library resources using your community or alumni card; you will need to visit the library in person​​​​
