Research assistance and instruction
Accessing research materials
See the Borrowing Library materials guide for more information on library cards, loan periods, intercampus delivery, reserves, and interlibrary loans (document delivery service).
SFU faculty, staff, and students also have borrowing privileges for the 22 university libraries that make up the Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries (COPPUL). See the Canadian University Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement for details.
Distance students, students in the Faculty of Education, students in the Executive MBA in Indigenous Business and Leadership program, and some other students are also eligible for Telebook, an SFU Library service that delivers library materials to the home of eligible library patrons.
Tools for easier access to online resources
See Accessing online resources from off campus for tools like the LibKey Nomad browser extension -- to make it easier and faster to view paywalled resources without coming in through the Library's website.
Current awareness resources
The Research Commons provides access and assistance with a range of Current awareness resources, including search alerts and Browzine.
