ABC COVID-19 Response

ABC is committed to preventing the spread of COVID-19 amongst our learning community and responding quickly and appropriately if COVID-19 symptoms or positive cases occur.

For more information, please read our COVID-19 Prevention Policy and COVID-19 Rapid Response Plan

We kindly ask that you make an appointment before coming to campus. All visitors, guests, and volunteers will be asked to complete our screening form. Please bring a mask and remember to practice physical distancing. 

ABC is moving towards reopening our campus in time for the beginning of the 2021-2022 academic year in September. Public health guidelines set out by the province of Alberta and Alberta Health will continue to dictate our planning, policies, and procedures as we move forward.

Planning for Covid-compliant events like new student orientation, chapel, Community Praying of the Psalms, and other on-campus gatherings is underway for the 2021-2022 academic year.

  1. If you need to get into contact with the librarian please reach her at [email protected] and she will reply as quickly as possible.
  2. Reference items and textbooks can not be checked out, but we will scan sections and email them to you. Notify us as to the title of the item, it’s call number, and the section you need and we will see that you get them.
  3.  The library has a TON of online resources. Check out our Research Resources in the sidebar on the right, and our instruction handouts posted here. I suggest you pay extra attention to our e-books (and the instructions on how to use them) as well as ATLA, our online journal database.

This is an extremely difficult and unusual time, but the library still aims to support you in your courses here at ABC. Our hearts and prayers go out to our city and our world as everyone is affected. Stay safe.
