Mobile Access

As a King's student, you have access to all of Dalhousie University Libraries E-Resources, including databases, e-books, and more.

Off-Campus Access to E-Resources

Current students have remote access to all databases, e-journals, and e-resources via the proxy server. The most seamless access point is via the Library's online catalogue, which establishes your institutional affiliation. When asked for credentials, log in with your NetID and password.

Borrow Anywhere, Return Anywhere

You probably already know that you can borrow books and other material from all the university and community college libraries in Nova Scotia using your King's library card. You may not know that you can borrow books from any public library in Nova Scotia and return them at any university or community college library in Nova Scotia, including King's - even if it's kilometers away from the loaning library. The same is true for university or community college books: you can return them at any public library in Nova Scotia, and they will be sent back to the library that owns them.

Borrow Anywhere: University, community college, or public library. Most public libraries will require you to register for a public library card using two pieces of valid I.D. (these can usually be from out-of-province) and a local mailing address (even if it's temporary). Find a full list of borrowing/membership policies here. To borrow from university and community college libraries other than King's, you just need to register your library card once (usually at the King's Library, the first time you borrow a book) and you're all set.

Return Anywhere: Books belonging to any library in Nova Scotia (public, university, or community college) can be returned at any other library in Nova Scotia, no matter how far away it is.

Exceptions: Interlibrary loan books: these will usually have a band of coloured paper around the book's cover, and have been ordered in from outside your library system (often from outside Nova Scotia). They won't appear on your Novanet account. You can login here to check if you have Interlibrary Loan books checked out. Interlibrary Loans must be returned to the library that loaned them to you.

Audiovisual materials: some libraries request that DVDs, CDs, and other audiovisual materials be returned only to the library that owns them. If they have a preference, this should generally be indicated on the DVD or CD case. When in doubt, call the Circulation Desk of the library that owns the material.

Borrow Anywhere, Return Anywhere is an initiative of Libraries Nova Scotia.

Search by your instructor's last name in the Reserves tab of the Novanet Catalogue to browse all of the items they've put on reserve, including books, photocopied articles, and their personal copies of books they've loaned to the Library for the duration of the course. You can check if the item you want is available, and ask for it by call number at the Circulation Desk of the Library.

Your instructor may also post e-resources in the Brightspace site for the course.
