The University Archivist and Special Collections Librarian, whose office is located in the UASC reading area, may also be available to assist you (appointment recommended -- 566-0536 Simon Lloyd firstname.lastname@example.org). Appointments with UASC staff for visits outside of scheduled hours and for in-depth reference consultations may be arranged.
If you would like to contribute to the development of the Robertson Library's digital collections (which are freely available to all) please visit our Gift page or contact Donald Moses (email@example.com, 902-566-0460).
These collections have been digitized by UPEI Robertson Library staff. For commercially published digital collections (e.g. ebooks), see Find Books and More.
1. When the Book A Space screen opens, select the desired date in the Reservations Calendar (because no study space/workstation can be booked more than one week in advance, only the next seven days will be shown).
2. Scroll down, and click the relevant tab. Tab names are in two parts: the first refers to the Library floor (Upper or Lower) and the second specifies the type of booking (Rooms = Study Rooms; Carrels = Study Carrels; Tables = Study Tables; Computers = Computer Workstations). After clicking the Lower-Computers tab, for example, you can then scroll down to see all the bookable computer workstations on the Library Lower (ground floor) level.
3. Clicking on the name of any Study Table / Study Carrel / Study Room / Computer Workstation listed in the calendar will open a floor plan showing its location within the Library (you can also click the "Room Descriptions" tab at the top of this screen for location information).
4. When you book a space, you must book out the full reservation block, whether you need the full time or not. There are only three time-slot booking options in Fall 2020 Monday - Friday = 8:30am, for 3.5 hours OR 1:30pm, for 4 hours
Saturday & Sunday = 12:30pm, for 4 hours
