Full List of Library Policies

If you need a book, article or other resource not available in our collections, our interlibrary loan service can fill the gap by requesting that item from another library. This service is freely available to SAIT students, staff and faculty.

If you want to borrow a book from a library in Calgary, The Alberta Library Card is also available.
