Library services

While you can't visit the Patrick Power Library in person, we are still open and offering services online and through alternative methods of instruction and supports.

Please email us with any questions- we’ll respond to your message as soon as possible during virtual library hours:

Monday-Friday: 9 a.m.-7 p.m.
Saturday: Closed
Sunday: 1-5 p.m. (Virtual research help only)

NOTE: Due to COVID-19, we are unable to produce University ID Cards at this time. Our services will resume when the campus reopens.

While the SMU ID Centre is closed, please present your Confirmation of Enrollment Letter as proof of your Saint Mary’s University student status. Confirmation of Enrollment Letters may be requested online.  Please note that you may be asked to show government issued photo ID as additional proof of identity.
