It is heavily used by government departments, industrial and commercial organizations, teachers, and medical and legal practitioners. The University Library System comprises the Bibliotheque Faculte St.-Jean, the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library, the Herbert T. Coutts (Education) Library, the Humanities and Social Sciences Library, the John A. Weir Memorial Law Library, the John W. Scott Health Sciences Library and the Science and Technology Library (MAPPS, 03-150-010, 1988). The Bruce Peel Special Collections Library houses the Universityþs rare books in the humanities and social sciences. It also includes some literary manuscripts, Western Canadiana, all the University of Alberta theses and dissertations, major holdings in English literature and 20th-century fine printing.

The Curriculum Collection contains guides and classroom materials for use with students from kindergarten to the grade twelve level. The John W. Scott Health Sciences Library in the Walter C. Mackenzie Health Sciences Centre contains books and periodicals for all the fields of the medical sciences and related basic sciences.
