Q. Are there changes to library services during the COVID-19 pandemic?


Physical Locations

All Sask Polytech Library locations are closed until further notice.

Library Material

All item due dates will be extended until after the library is open again.  All fines accumulated during this time will be waived.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic Library encourages you to stay home and safe; however, if you feel you must return your library items, you can do so between 8:00-4:30, Monday to Friday (closed statutory holidays). A return bin has been placed at the main entrance (between the front doors) of each main campus (although access into the building is restricted). Please practice physical distancing. 

You are encouraged to hold onto your library materials and return them within 2 weeks from the date that campuses reopen.

Holds have been suspended until further notice. Any holds that were ready for pickup will still be available when the library reopens. 

Computer Labs

Computer labs are closed: Students who do not have access to computers or reliable internet in their off-campus locations should contact campussafetyandsecurity@saskpolytech.ca. Sask Polytech will work to find alternative solutions on an individual basis.

Chat service

During the closures, library users will have access to chat services between 8 am and 4:30 pm, Monday-Friday. Chat can be accessed here: https://library.saskpolytech.ca/askuslive.aspx

Email service

As always, library users can get in touch with us via email at help.library@saskpolytech.ca

Writing Support

Check out the Writing Support Zoom room, which is available 9:00-4:30 Monday to Saturday.

Interlibrary Loans

We are suspending ILL requests for books/DVDs (i.e. physical materials). Please use this form to request articles: https://library.saskpolytech.ca/request.aspx

Keep an eye on the Student FAQs page and the main site for important information and updates.
