Library Services

Library Services Available to Off-Campus Students

Off-Campus students can access library resources in two ways:

UREAD Distance Services - (University of Regina Education at a Distance) a service that provides library support for distance students and distance education faculty and staff (who live and study outside of Regina).

Exclusive E-Resources - your active library account (14-digit barcode from your student/library card) provides you with off-campus access to hundreds of exclusive online databases and thousands of online journals and books that you won’t find through a general internet search.

More information on accessing off-campus library services.

Interlibrary Loans

The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) borrowing service allows students, faculty, and staff to borrow materials from other libraries if materials are not held or available online via the First Nations University of Canada and University of Regina library system. To place an ILL request, you must have an active library account. Requests can be placed via an online interlibrary loan form. Your 14-digit barcode from your student/library card is required for authentication.

Reference and circulation assistance

Library patrons have access to reference services during daytime library hours. Regina campus patrons can expect reference services from a Librarian and circulation support from Library Technicians. Saskatoon and Prince Albert patrons can expect reference and circulation support from Library Technicians.

Computer Workstations and printing services

Each campus library provides computers for patron use. In most cases, there are more patrons than computers so please limit your computer use to school related activities only.

Each campus library provides a printer/photocopier for patron use.

The FNUniv campuses have computer labs. When the labs are free, patrons can use the computers and printing services provided. The labs also provide overflow when the library workstations are all occupied.
