General Engineering

A Guide to Library Resources for Studies in Engineering

Still Here for You!


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

Due to the COVID-19 situation, most Dalhousie Libraries' physical locations are closed -- except for limited and safe access to the Wallace McCain Learning Commons and the Kellogg Library Learning Commons in the CHEB.

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!
