Services for Alumni and Community Borrowers

The Ambrose campus, including the library, is open to all members of the public including alumni and community borrowers.

Everyone is welcome to come into the library to study and access the library's journal article databases while on campus. Alumni and members of the public who live in Calgary may sign up for a Community Borrower account to borrow books from our collection. More information about the Community Borrower account can be found at the bottom of the Library Staff & Policies page.

Alumni of Ambrose University and its founding schools are welcome to request access to ATLAS for Alumni, the full text portion of the ATLA Religion Database. More information is available on the ATLAS for Alumni page.
