Bruce Peel Special Collections offers limited service in fall term

No comments :

Bruce Peel Special Collections will remain closed throughout the fall term due to a large facilities project that began on 8 September 2020. 

We are sorry that we will not be able to offer research appointments as soon as we had hoped, but we will continue to do our best to serve researchers' needs remotely by answering questions about rare materials, providing researchers with images of materials not otherwise available (whenever possible), and providing links to digital resources that may help to meet current research and teaching needs (see "Working with primary materials from home (Digital Peel)." 

In the winter term, we hope to be open to a limited number of researchers (by appointment) in order to comply with social distancing and other protocols intended to limit the spread of COVID-19. This plan may change at any time on short notice, depending on the health of our staff and the evolving pandemic response outlined by governments and the University of Alberta.  Information about appointment bookings will be added to this NEWS post and provided on the forms that are normally used to request materials in advance.

To find out whether other University of Alberta Library locations and service points are open or closed, please check the University of Alberta website for current COVID-19 information.  

If you require general reference support from University of Alberta Library, please consider using the chat service through the University of Alberta Library website.  

If you have questions that relate to materials housed in Bruce Peel Special Collections, you can send us an email at and you can be assured that we will respond on a timely basis.

Take care!
