Reserves collection

Many Reserve items are available in digital format that you can view or print within the Library or from your office or home. These have the location "Reserves online article." These online articles are only available to students registered in the course they are on reserve for.

Lecture recordings

Lectures for selected courses are recorded by SFU’s Learning and Instructional Development Centre and available over the web; the recordings are available within a day of the lecture.
