COVID-19 Library Service Information: Curbside Pickup

Curbside Pickup Service

To better support learning and teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Reg Erhardt Library has started a limited curbside pickup service. 

Curbside pickup allows users to request physical books online, through Library Search, and safely pick-up those books from campus. This service is subject to the following limitations:

  • Requests can only be placed on books in our main circulating collection (mostly items with location 'Level-0') and the CTC/Reserve collections.
    • Circulating books have a 3 week loan period.
    • CTC/Reserve books have a 1 week loan period and $4/day late charges. 
  • Only current SAIT faculty, students and staff can access this service.
  • Curbside pickup is only available
    • Monday - Friday: 8:30 am to 3:00 pm
    • Closed Saturday, Sunday and holidays

To access this service:

  1. Place a request for a book (see the Request a Book sidebar).
  2. Wait for email notification that the book is available for pick-up.

    Notifications will go to your SAIT email address. Requests for items currently on-shelf, will usually be fulfilled within 2 business days. Requests for items out to other users will take longer to fulfill, depending on that item's due date. 
  3. Follow the instructions in the notification email.

    Phone 403-284-8616 to notify staff you've arrived for your pick-up. Staff will meet you outside the Stan Grad building at Boyce Crescent  (see Campus Map).

    Your books will already be signed-out to you when you pick them up. Another person can pick up your books, if they provide your SAIT ID# to Library staff. 

    You must wear a mask when picking up your books.
  4. Return your books by the due date (see the Returning Books sidebar).

NOTE: If you're feeling unwell, do not come to campus. Contact us if you want to cancel your request or revise your pick up date.
