Librarians provide reference and research assistance and are available to help you find the information and resources that you need.
There are several ways to reach us:
Access Services staff provide assistance with borrowing library materials, including course reserves and inter-library loans. They also handle library accounts (barcodes, PINs and book renewals), seat and study room bookings, photocopiers/printers/scanners, and general inquiries.

The Mount Allison libraries and post-secondary libraries in Nova Scotia provide an online help service, Novanet Live Help.
This service is for simple questions only (e.g. “Where is this book located?” or “How do I access the full text of this article?”). For more complex questions, please use the Ask a Librarian chat reference service or contact a librarian directly (see above for details).
The University Archives makes available for research purposes the historical records of Mount Allison institutions and selected records from the local community. These include materials such as annual reports, academic calendars, minutes of meetings, correspondence, diaries, scrapbooks, photographs, maps, and architectural records.
The Archives office is located on the third floor of the R.P. Bell Library.
