The Dawson College library is here to serve the academic needs of students and teachers, and we need your help to make strong choices about the library’s collections.
To that end, we urge you to use our online forms to request new library materials or schedule an in-class library instruction session. Please feel free to contact us any time for more information about our services, or to discuss matters relating to our collections.
Library Request Forms
Complete this form to arrange a library orientation session in your classroom, or in the library’s own computer lab (room 6C.2). Please be sure to provide as much detail as possible about the course, and to attach a copy of your assignment. You will receive an automatic confirmation of your request, and a librarian will be in touch to verify availability.
When you complete the purchase request form your request will be submitted for review by the library’s selection committee and you will receive an automatic confirmation. We will contact you once the book has been processed and is available for circulation. A librarian will get in touch if there are any questions about your request.
Please lets us know if you have ideas about how we can improve our collections or services.
For further details, please visit our Film Services page.
