Electronic resources

Off-campus access to MRU Library subscription electronic resources (including ebooks)  is restricted to current Mount Royal University students, faculty and staff.

Alumni, retirees, and members of the community may only access these resources in person from the public access computers located in the Mount Royal University Library.

Many Alberta public libraries offer their members off-site access to some popular electronic resources (e.g. the Calgary Public Library and the Marigold Library system).

Computer facilities

A number of computer workstations are available for public use. Cash printing and photocopying are also available.

Members of the community can access library computers by asking for the password of the day from the Library Service Desk.
