The Online Reference Centre provides a unique collection of online reference and information resources in both English and French. The ORC is made available for K-12 students, teachers and parents through a Grant-in-Aid to The Alberta Library from Alberta Education.
Access is granted by entering a username and password specific to the school district the student is registered in.
