Taylor College and Seminary is a member of the NEOS library consortium, which facilitates access to library holdings. The members are government, hospital, college and university libraries throughout Alberta, and our students have access to millions of books and journals, and can browse these collections and order titles online, and can pick up and drop off their books at Taylor or at another NEOS location.

Access the NEOS system through the links below; your Taylor library card and your PIN are all you need.
