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.
In September 2013 public library staff were included in all ORC contracts for the purposes of training and supporting K-12 patrons. (Community librarians PowerPoint presentation)
