The following services are available to all King's students, but may be of particular interest to journalism students enrolled in the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction program who are working at a distance from the King's campus
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.
The Council of Atlantic University Libraries Borrowing Card gives the card holder in-person borrowing privileges at CAUL/CBUA libraries, and many university libraries across Canada. Borrowers' privileges are similar to their home institution's. Find a current list of libraries available to CAUL card holders and more information on the Canadian University Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement website.
Eduroam (education roaming) is a wireless service that allows students, staff, and faculty to use their own home institution’s wireless credentials to access wireless network services when visiting any other eduroam affiliated institution without having to set up a guest account. The best practice is to configure eduroam on your device while you are on campus.
If you experience issues while attempting to access wireless service at another institution through the eduroam setup on your device, you need to contact Dalhousie's help desk for assistance. Support services at other eduroam affiliated sites you may visit are not required under the eduroam agreement to provide major support - this is the sole responsibility of the home institution.
In addition to borrowing privileges at select university libraries through their CAUL card, King's distance students also have access to books and articles via King's Interlibrary Loan. Books that are borrowed from libraries within Canada can be mailed to King's distance students at their home addresses, and photocopy requests that conform to the fair dealing provision of the Copyright Act can be delivered as .pdf links to students' email addresses.
Chat with a Novanet Librarian, no matter where you are. Librarians can help direct you to appropriate resources and troubleshoot your access to them via instant-messaging chat. Students are also always welcome to call the King's Library with questions at 902-422-1271 ext. 171, or to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
