How to get a library card

Students: A student must be currently registered at Aurora College (any campus or community learning centre) and must have a valid student ID card. The ID card will be your library card, so bring it with you.

Faculty and staff: The library will issue a permanent library card, which is valid as long as the faculty or staff member are employed with Aurora College.

Evening instructors and tutors: In recognition of their service to the college, evening instructors and tutors are issued library cards.

Community borrowers: An external borrower’s card may be issued upon request to persons otherwise not affiliated with Aurora College including Aurora College students without a valid student ID card, and GNWT employees.

Interlibrary loan: Items from Campus Libraries are lent through interlibrary loan to borrowers outside of their community.
