Access Web-based Library Books and Articles

As an M.Ed. student studying at a distance, you have access to our Library's e-books and streaming videos, in addition to our licensed databases and other online resources.

 

Obtain Print-based Books

1) Materials listed in our Library catalogue

If you require circulating materials listed in our library catalogue to be sent to you, please use the REQUEST button located at the top of the catalogue page describing the item you need.

Visit Borrowing Privileges for the further information.

If you are keen to know new materials at the University of Lethbridge Library, check RSS Feeds to Library Resources, What's New...

2) Materials that are not found in our Library catalogue

If you require material not owned or licensed by the University of Lethbridge Library, Interlibrary Loan Service is recommended; however, this service is dependent on where you live.


a) Distance M.Ed./Distance Master of Counselling Students who are living within Alberta and at least 90 km outside of Lethbridge may request both types of Interlibrary Loans (e.g., books or journal articles).


  • Journal articles are sent electronically to your email address. You must return all other library loans to the University of Lethbridge Library by their due dates using the same delivery methods we used to send them to you (e.g., Canada Post, private courier, etc.).
  • The Library may restrict requests only to Canadian locations.

b) Distance M.Ed./Distance Master of Counselling students who are living outside of Alberta and Canada may request copies of journal articles or chapters of books which will sent electronically to your email address.


  • The Library is unable to offer Interlibrary Loan services involving other libraries' books because the borrowing time granted by other institutions is insufficient for sending, using and returning materials.
  • Libraries outside of Canada may request a formal letter from us requesting library service on your behalf. If you require this kind of documentation outside of Canada, please email our Document Delivery Services at lib.ddsl@uleth.ca.
