During the academic year, all post-secondary institutions in Nova Scotia collaborate to provide an online help service. This service is primarily intended for simple questions (e.g. "Where is this book located?" "How do I access the full text of this article?"). For more complex questions, we recommend that you contact your librarian directly.
