NEOS Library Consortium

Sharing resources and knowledge to empower people.

NEOS is a consortium of academic, government and health libraries collaborating to serve their clients. NEOS libraries share a catalogue and integrated library system, and work together on learning initiatives, document delivery and a range of core library activities.I

Library services during the COVID-19 pandemic have changed and are still evolving. Most libraries are offering services online and are partially open although the Alberta Health Services libraries remain closed for in-person services. Please check the website of your NEOS member library for details. If you are not sure how to contact your library, please contact the University of Alberta Library.

Many campuses and libraries are restricting access to their own clients, although a few are more open to others. Libraries are encouraging clients to return items to the extent it is possible, particularly items that have been recalled. Clients can return items at their own library or at book drop locations that are accessible by people other than a library’s own clients. As returns and meeting due dates are difficult during the pandemic, libraries are limiting the application of overdue fees.
