We have an agreement with our sister school Alexander College for Brighton College students to use their library resources. They are located down the street at # 101 – 4603 Kingsway in Burnaby.
Alexander College’s library provides the highest level of resources and instructional services so students can perform research, study, and surf the web with confidence. Services are under constant re-evaluation to ensure they are up-to-date and responsive. The College builds and maintains a physical collection of relevant materials for students. It includes a wide range of databases for student use through a centralized Discovery system, which includes eBooks, academic articles, periodicals, and reports. For more information, refer to Alexander College’s library page.
Our Burnaby campus is located 1 block away from the Burnaby Public Library Metrotown location. They have an even more extensive collection and students are able to hold books through their online portal.
Brighton’s online resource library provides recommended online database, e-books, and other references to support students’ research and learning excellence. Students can obtain access to a wide range of resources by using this online library.
