New Online Library Service
The SACL is proud to announce a new service through its John Dolan Resource Centre. The Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) will allow patrons to search the extensive library holdings and place orders for materials, all online.
To access the OPAC follow the link at http://www.sacl.org/library. If you wish to book, reserve, borrow or rent resources you have found on our catalogue please contact Lalita Martfeld, our librarian to receive your own unique user name and password. Phone her at (306) 955-3344, ext. 20 or by email.
This library is one of Canada's most extensive lending libraries of its kind open to not only its own members, but to the general public. The collection features resources on intellectual and other disabilities, inclusion and all aspects of community living. More than 5,000 items including books, reports, video and audio materials, journals, training kits, and information packages are available. A vast range of information is offered, from archival materials to the most current resources available including SACL-published materials.
A full-time librarian is on hand to assist patrons, and the Centre (housed at the SACL head office in Saskatoon) has developed an excellent reputation. Educators, students at all levels, various professionals, families, volunteers and human services staff are regular patrons. There is a constant and growing need for the most up-to-date resources and for more resources accessible to people with limited literacy skills.
The Resource Centre loans most materials free of charge. Some borrowing fees apply to specific materials, and some are only available for in-house viewing. As much advance notice as possible is requested; return is expected promptly to avoid delays for other patrons. For borrowing information, contact the Resource Centre librarian at (306) 955-3344, fax (306) 373-3070 or email: [email protected]
