Civil Engineering

A Guide to Library Resources for Studies in Civil Engineering

Still Here for You!


My name is Allie, and I am your Librarian. I am working from home now, Monday to Friday.

Some Dal Libraries' spaces are open to you for study rooms, computers, desks, and printing. Please visit our booking site to make an appointment in one of our spaces.

Here is a page that has lots of information for you about online learning at Dalhousie this coming fall -- information on getting started, what to expect, supports & resources, and tips to succeed.

Do not hesitate to contact me via email -- -- for any type of Library help you need. We can also meet in person via Zoom or Teams. If I can't answer your question directly, I will find someone who can!

Engineering is a Noble Profession its heart Engineering is about using science to find creative practical solutions. It is a noble profession. Queen Elizabeth.
