Help us make the Library website better!

The Library's Web Committee is looking at ways to improve the Help section of the library website, and we want to hear from you. We're asking library staff for the most common questions they receive, but we know that students, faculty and staff don't always come in person to ask for help. In fact, that's why we have help pages on the website!

So, please tell us your ideas or opinions about the kind of help you want or need on the library's website. If there are things about our current Help pages that don't work for you, tell us that too.

We can't promise to fix everything, but your input will help us start making improvements.

The form will be up until March 21 but you can send us feedback about the website whenever you like, using the general feedback form.

Quiet, Please! service is back at the Library

Now that construction in the Library is easing off, we have brought back our “Quiet, Please!” service. If you are on a silent floor (floors 3 and 5) and you are being disturbed by noise, just send a message to quiet@library.carleton.ca (or use the handy form on our website). The more details you can provide, the better we will be able to respond. So tell us exactly where you are (e.g. 3rd floor by the spiral staircase) or who exactly is being noisy (e.g. the woman with glasses, red shirt and black pants).

You can find the Quiet, Please! contact information on our website by hovering over “Contact” on the black menu bar at the top of the screen.

Welcome to our new website!

Welcome to the new Carleton University Library website!

At the beginning of this redesign, you told us that we should focus on two things: organization and usability.  We've been working ever since to deliver a website with a friendlier, more intuitive interface that still provides all the content you need for your research.

We encourage you to take a moment to explore the site.  Here's a quick overview of the main sections:

Find - library materials by type: books, databases, government information, theses, etc.
Research - our guides to library research broken down by course and by subject.
Services - all the services located in the library, from borrowing, to map displays, to learning support.
Help - ask us for support or read one of our online help pages.
Contact - how to get in touch with us online or in person.

Please let us know what you think via our Feedback form.  We're committed to providing quality service and we can only get there with feedback from our users.

Need the old website?  It's still available at http://www2.library.carleton.ca.
