Distance Education and Directed Reading Students

Student Card

If you are a Distance Education or a Directed Readings student and you live in Winnipeg, please plan to visit the Providence campus and get a student card with your picture on it. This card will allow you to borrow materials from the William Falk Library and libraries of other post-secondary institutions in Winnipeg. Contact the William Falk Library staff to arrange a time to get your picture taken and receive your student card.



If you are taking a directed readings course, in all likelihood your instructor will give you a list of required readings. You should plan to purchase these materials by clicking the link below. If you require additional assistance doing research or determining what materials you should be using, contact Terry Kennedy for additional assistance.


Database Assistance

If you need access to the databases to which the Library subscribes, you will need a user name and password. Contact the Network Administrator (below) to arrange access.

If you are taking an online course through Providence you will receive a user name and password that will give you access to the databases to which the William Falk Library subscribes. This access is inside the course itself. There are some general instructions on using the databases within your course.



Have other burning library-related questions that you need answered? Don't hesitate to contact us at 204-433-7488 ext. 279 or email us below. We're always happy to lend a helping hand!
