Welcome to the University of Toronto Libraries! We are happy to help you from wherever you may be at this time.
Please refer to the COVID-19: Fall 2021 Updates on library services and operations for the latest information on what's available and open, including study spaces and library building hours.
If you're only using Google, you're missing out. The library's website gives you access to the largest and richest library collection in Canada including materials that are behind a paywall. Don't pay for stuff that you could access for free with your UTORid!
(And read this FAQ if you're still wondering why you can't just use Google :-)
Login with your UTORid and password to get off campus access to almost all of our online books, articles, and other materials.
If we don't have an item that you need, we can get it for you from another library at no cost to you.
Library staff members are here to help you. We are research experts who can help you save time and energy when using the library for your assignments.
No computer or wifi access? No problem! The libraries can help. Learn more about accessing a computer workstation or wifi at libraries around campus.
Need to join an online class while on campus? The libraries have set up "Remote Zones" in Robarts Library and Gerstein Science Information Centre for you to connect to your lecture.
The University of Toronto library system can seem daunting at first, but there are lots of ways to familiarize yourself with it.
Library tours orient you to the layout of the library and show you things you might not discover on your own. An audio tour of Robarts Library at St. George campus is available online in English, French, Cantonese, Korean, and Mandarin. You can also check out our virtual library tour videos of some of our libraries on campus:
Library workshops are a great way to learn how to do library research now that you're in university. We offer a number of online sessions, where you can learn about:
Learn more about research skills in your own time through the Library Research Skills online modules (bonus: you can earn a CCR credit for completing them in this Quercus course!) Use these modules to learn library skills that you will use in many of your university courses. Each module is a stand-alone resource. You can complete them in any order, all at the same time, or individually as you need them.
We also have a list of self-paced modules and pre-recorded workshops, which include topics on data visualization, and intro to R (a programming language for data analysis and statistics).
