To our Dawson Community…We hope this page helped you in the early days of the closure, but we believe it time to “retire” it. All of the information and resources we had posted here have been integrated into our (re-titled) All Resources page.
As the Library prepares to support students, teachers and staff through online learning, please know that our staff is available to help you, even from a distance.
|Ask a Librarian||▽|
|Ask a Librarian serves as a central point of contact for questions about our resources and services, or to report difficulties accessing our collections and website. We monitor these messages between 8:00 – 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.
Voice messages left on the Reference Desk extension – (514) 931-8731 ext. 1731. – are also forwarded to a shared account.
|Book a Librarian||▽|
|If you would like to schedule an appointment to “meet” with a Librarian via Zoom, or by phone, please don’t hesitate to select a date and time using our calendar app. If you aren’t available during our regular “opening hours,” we’ll do our best to schedule a time that fits.|
|Borrowing & Returning Books||▽|
If you currently have items checked out, you may return them in person to the Security office (2E.14), between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.
If you cannot make it in to the college, you may (at your own cost) send your library books to us by mail at the following address:
c/o Security, suite 2E.14
3040 Sherbrooke St. W.
Canada H3Z 1A4
It is possible now for faculty members to borrow physical books from our collection. To do so, please send us your selection(s) before midnight on Wednesday. Your item(s) will be available for pick-up between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. every Thursday afternoon.
Unfortunately, it is not currently possible for us to checkout books to students. We are exploring ways to offer limited access to the library’s Reserves collection, and will post updates to Omnivox as they become available.
|Library Instruction Request||▽|
|Like you, we’re ready to Zoom!
If you’d like to provide your students with a simple library introduction (10 min.), a database search tutorial (20-30 min.), or a customized “information literacy” session (30 min.+), our librarians are ready to work with you to design a meaningful online learning experience.
Please complete our instruction request form to schedule a time, and we’ll follow up with you by phone, email, or Zoom.
|Book/Film Purchase Request||▽|
|If you need a new book or film for your course, please tell us what you need by completing a purchase request form. We’ll do our best to acquire it in an accessible, digital format. (Unless, of course, it’s a hard copy you need and want!)|
|Suggest a Website||▽|
We would like our library website to serve as a central point of access for any resources that students need to succeed in your classes. To this end, we envision creating a Course Materials page on our site, delivering links to course websites and to other high-quality resources you recommend to your students.
If there is a website you would like us include, please consider sharing it through our Suggest a Website form.
