NEW! Undergraduate Research Events & Prizes

The University of Toronto is well-known for its dynamic research environment, and U of T Scarborough is committed to fostering opportunities for undergraduate research experiences. As part of this commitment, the UTSC Office of the Vice-Principal Research and the UTSC Library launched two research initiatives in 2016: the UTSC Undergraduate Research Poster Forum and the UTSC Undergraduate Research Prize. A third opportunity for recognition exists through the U of T Library system's Research Prize.

Each program provides an opportunity for students who have excelled in research, scholarship and creative activities to showcase their research and win cash prizes.

Librarian Office Hours

If you want help finding that elusive bit of information or journal article for Chemistry or Environmental Sciences/Studies Courses come see your librarian!

If you can't make it during office hours make an appointment by e-mailing me (contact info on the left) or drop by at other times – I don’t bite, and if I’m busy the worst I’m going to do is ask if we can set an appointment time. 

I also encourage you to talk to the reference desk staff in the library especially if you are looking for assistance outside the hours I'm normally in my office.
