Bruce Peel Special Collections offers limited service

No comments :

Bruce Peel Special Collections expects to remain closed to the public throughout the 2020-2021 academic year due to COVID-19 restrictions and a large facilities project that began in September 2020. 

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)."  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.

In the winter term (2021), we are hoping to be able to accommodate researchers whose needs cannot be met with digital resources by offering a limited number of research appointments in Peel's reading rooms. Any such arrangements will require compliance 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 status of facilities work in the library, 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.  

Take care!
