ARCHEXPO 2017 has arrived!

The annual architectural and design exhibit, ARCHEXPO, is hosted by the School of Construction and Reg Erhardt Library.

Learn about the architectural standards and practices through history and discover how these historical influences continue to shape architectural styles from the 19th to the 21st centuries.

This year, 15 teams of students from the ARCH 260 classes are presenting model and poster presentations of the work of a noted architect, illustrating significant historical precedents.

These incredible architectural masterpieces are on display in the Reg Erhardt Library from January 2nd to January 31st, 2017.

Come help us celebrate the work produced by our amazing Architectural Technology students and their instructors.

Students, staff, and visitors to the Library can vote for their favorite architectural presentation through the ARCHEXPO 2017 People's Choice Awards.

Voting closes on Monday, January 30th at 12 noon.

Presenting Curio - a new Canadian Audio & Video Resource

Have you heard? The Library now provides access to CBC’s Curio.

Curio is an online streaming service that provides access to a wealth of CBC audio and video content, including news reports, documentaries, interviews, and more. The service is beneficial for instructors who may be looking to tie lessons to current and historical events, and beneficial for students who may be looking to add quality educational material to their presentations and assignments.
The site is easy to browse, as it’s divided into seven main subject categories:
  • Arts
  • Business
  • Education
  • Health
  • History and Geography
  • Science
  • Social Sciences

The site can also be searched for specific programs or keywords/themes and searches can be limited to age group, format, or subject matter.
CBC Curio contains no advertisements and provides SAIT students and faculty instant access to high definition Canadian content on their desktops or mobile devices.

What are you waiting for? Check it out for yourself on the CBC Curio site.
Looking for more Canadian content, visit the Library website and type Canadian in the Search for an e-Resource.
