COVID-19 Library services & resources


We're here for you!

The health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and library employees is always the top priority of Camosun College Library. We are offering limited access to physical spaces and collections, and continue to deliver most of our services online.

Maintaining a safe library environment and reducing the spread of COVID-19 is both an individual and a shared responsibility. To support the health and safety of students and employees, the College requires that everyone wear a non-medical mask in indoor public spaces while on campus. While you are on campus you will be expected to maintain a safe social distance (6 ft / 2m) from others and to follow all instructions from staff.

Do your part and learn more about COVID-19 and how to be safe on campus.
