Library services for students


Library staff are here to help you. Can't find anything to help with your course work? Not sure how to cite something? We can help.

Look for the library's chat box on our website and in many of our databases. Or contact us here, in person, by phone, or e-mail.

AskAway help

BC's college and university libraries provide a chat assistance service for students. You'll find the AskAway chat widget on our website and in many of our databases. AskAway is often open for your convenience when the library is closed.

Beyond books

Students at CMTN can borrow snowshoes, fishing rods, bikes, DVDs, tablets and laptops from the library to make the most of their experience in the Northwest. Ask us about this today.

Bike share program

Did you know that you can now check out a bike from our campus libraries? All that you need is a Coast Mountain College library card and you can check out a bicycle for on- or off-campus riding. What a great way to explore the community or get some exercise between classes.  Check it out today.

Interlibrary loans

Does another library own what you need? We can get it for you. Request interlibrary loans here, in person, by phone, or e-mail. You may follow the "Where can I get this?" link in the library's article databases to request copies of journal, magazine or newspaper articles.

Loan renewals

You may request loan renewals in person, by phone, by e-mail or online.

Off-campus access to licensed resources

The library licenses hundreds of electronic resources: databases, e-books, streaming videos. Access is restricted to the College's students and employees. See Login Help for access instructions.

Project Rooms

Book a project room for up to four people to use through Bookings. Rooms are available in time slots of one hour, Monday through Friday. Please confirm the access of the building prior to booking. 

Unlimited borrowing

There is no limit on the number of items you may borrow from the College library. You may request loans online in the library's catalogue. Look for the "Request loan" link in your search results. Please note that you must know your PIN in order to request loans. Don't know your PIN? Please ask us.
