How do I use the library?
Every NorQuest student, staff, and faculty has a library barcode and PIN – this allows you access to library resources.
If you have received your student ID card (electronic or physical), your 13 digit barcode is located on the bottom of your card and starts with 138.
If you cannot find your library barcode, please email the library
and ask us to send you your barcode.
Include your student ID number in your email. You can also contact the library’s chat service (Ask Us!) during regular business hours.
You might have received your library PIN via email – check your NorQuest email to be sure. If you have not received your PIN in your email, visit this website to get your PIN sent to you - we cannot send your PIN through email or chat. Make sure to use your MyMail address!
In order to search our catalogue or access any journal articles, ebooks, or videos, you will have to log in and verify that you are a student, staff, or faculty at NorQuest College. This video will show you how to do that. You can log in using EITHER using the same log-in you use for Moodle/MyMail OR using your 13 digit library barcode with your last name.
Please note that while the Learner Centre is closed, Library Pickup is unavailable. If you would like a physical item from our shelves, you can place the item on hold with our library pickup service. Please click here for more information on the process.
If you need assistance with research and citation skills, we will be offering drop-in online office hours from 10 AM-2PM Monday to Friday – more information here
If you wish to access the physical Learner Centre space in order to use study areas or computers, you must make a seat reservation. Visit our booking site to reserve your seat.
