The article features the digital library of Yukon College, one of the smallest post-secondary institutions in Canada. The college will play host to the participants of the Canada Winter Games and the management has decided to close the library for a month. This led to the decision of the library staff to go online to continuously serve the students even without a physical library and the effort greatly benefited the students as they can now do research works on the Internet.
