Accessing an online book

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. I am having trouble accessing an online book, "Sliammon Life, Sliammon Lands." by Dorothy Kennedy and randy Bouchard. I used it a few days ago, but for the last few days the link seems to be unusable. It is on the Ebrary site. I need to access this book as part of a project. Thanks!

A. Could you tell me how you are accessing the title? For example what link are clicking on to get to the title, are you going though the library catalogue?

Try this link and let me know if you still cannot access.

Term renewals and returning books to other SFU Library branches

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. I have 2 questions:

1. When do term renewals start for books due September 6th?

2. Can a book borrowed from the Bennett branch of the Library be returned at the Belzberg branch?



1. Renewals for semester loan books started yesterday (July 31st).
2, It can unless it is a reserves book (the short term loan books put on for specific classes). Reserves books must be returned to the campus they were borrowed from.
