Library Road Book Return Slot Closed

Due to ongoing construction, the library road book return slot has been closed. The book return slots on the tunnel level and in the foyer will continue to be available. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

New Public Printers in the Library

The new multi-function printers have arrived in the library!

Best things about the new printers:

  • Swipe your card, or login, directly on the new printer. No need to use a separate print workstation.
  • Scanning, printing and photocopying all from the same machine.
  • Print from your mobile device.

The library is the first building to have new printers. Soon they will appear across the University and in new locations like lobbies of major buildings and residences. Read all about this new printing service: CU on the GO.

Stacks staff have been testing the new printers and the results are positive.

For more information contact Graphic Services (613) 520-3625.

No New Content in Scholars Portal Journals until August 18

No new journal content will be loaded on to the Scholars Portal Journals platform between July 19 and August 18, due to a software upgrade. This will affect people trying to access new content through the Library’s “Get it” service. If possible, please select fulltext from publishers’ websites instead of Scholars Portal.

If you’re having difficulties, please contact the Research Help Desk (613-520-2735, askthelibrary@carleton.ca or chat) for assistance.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
