How do I find a book?
Books & e-books may be found physically on a shelf at RDP Library, online, or at other libraries.
At the Library
Like most academic libraries, RDP Library's collection is organized by subject using the Library of Congress classification system. When you find a print book on the shelf, you can look at the books around it as they might be helpful, too.
Each item has a unique call number. Call numbers are a combination of letters and numbers that tell you the book’s location in the library.
Watch this video to learn how to read a call number and find your book on the library's shelves.
When you find an ebook in the Library Catalogue, look for the Red Deer College Access link:
Access is limited to RDP students, staff and faculty due to licensing restrictions. RDP students, faculty, or staff who are off-campus will need to enter their iCard barcode and NEOS PIN to access an ebook or other licensed resource.
