 Using the Library . 

  Our Mission

Yellowhead Tribal College (YTC) Library supports the mission of the college, which is to deliver accredited programs that meet the needs of its students and communities while nurturing First Nations culture and traditions.

YTC Library's mission is therefore to:

Support the program curricula of the College and provide information resources and recreational reading materials to YTC students, staff, and communities.

YTC Library's primary mandate is to collect and provide access to a diversity of materials in a variety of formats that support the academic programs and individual courses taught at the College. The Library also aims to serve the information and reading needs of the YTC communities (Alexis, Alexander, Enoch, Sunchild, and O'Chiese First Naitons) whose members may not have easy access to a public library. The Library is also developing an extensive Aboriginal Collection, which is available to YTC students, faculty, staff, Elders, and interested researches from outside the College community.
