What to expect from Library and Academic Services this fall

August 27, 2021

All of the staff at Library and Academic Services are happy to extend a warm welcome to everyone returning to campus. We’re looking forward to providing a safe study space and continuing to offer supports to students and staff, both in-person and online.

In-person service now available

Beginning on August 30, the Library at the Notre Dame Campus is re-opening for in-person service (note that our EDC location will remain closed at this time). While we look forward to seeing you, we encourage you to continue to take advantage of our online service desk, which is available during regular Library hours by clicking the Ask Us button at library.rrc.ca.

Services and spaces within the Library

The following spaces and services are currently available at the NDC Library:

  • Individual study spaces
  • One printer/photocopier
  • Three computer stations
  • Limited physically-distanced group study space
  • Borrowing of Library materials
  • Reference services
  • A welcoming and safe environment

What to expect when you arrive

For everyone’s safety, the Coronavirus guidelines prescribed by the College are in effect when using Library spaces and you will be required to sign in and out when using the space.

We have spread things out to accommodate physical distancing with signage placed throughout the Library to help you know which spaces are available to use. There are a variety of choices available, marked by signs that indicate “Individual Study Space” or “Group Study Space.” In addition, there are three computers available with a printer/photocopier nearby.

Virtual services from Academic Success Centre

The Academic Success Centre will continue to offer services virtually for the Fall Term. In-person individual supports will be available to students upon request. The ASC will work to accommodate these requests on an individual basis and if a tutor is available. To follow physical distancing required on-campus, group tutoring and workshops will remain online.

Our focus will continue to be led by student demand. We look forward to connecting with students this Fall term and invite you to visit the ASC website for updated information on our services.

As we enter a new academic year, we wish the College community of students and staff an insightful year of learning and discovery.
