Reference and Research Services

The UTM Library building is closed, in accordance with the Ontario government's shutdown of all non-essential services, to combat the spread of COVID-19. Library staff continue to support UTM students, faculty, and staff with online resources and services.

While physical resources are not available at this time, the University of Toronto Libraries provides access to millions of electronic resources including e-books, e-journals, and streaming video. Contact us for assistance on how to access these electronic resources.
