Welcome to the University of Toronto Libraries! Learn more about the services, resources, and support available to you as you begin your studies.
There are 40 libraries across three campuses at U of T. Look around for the best space to suit your study style.
Looking for a spot rest or reset after a long study session? Visit the Reflection Rooms at Robarts Library or Gerstein Science Information Centre. The space is designed for religious, spiritual and secular practices, including prayer, meditation, yoga and mindfulness.
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 through interlibrary loan (ILL).
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.
You can connect to our wireless network with your UTORid and password.
There are computer workstations available throughout the library. Some libraries also loan out laptops and other devices.

Some libraries also loan out laptops and tablets.
There are printers, photocopiers, and scanners at many U of T libraries. You can even print wirelessly from your laptop or mobile device.
You'll need to put money on your TCard to print and photocopy. It normally costs between $0.10 and $0.15 per page. Also, bring a USB key if you want to use the scanners.
We even have 3D printers!
There are over 12 million print books available through U of T Libraries. Undergraduate students can borrow up to 50 books at a time for 14 days. Graduate students can borrow 200 items for 90 days. Learn more about loan services, including holds and renewals.

Once you have your book(s), bring them to the library's circulation desk to check the book out or use one of our self-checkout machines.
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).
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. Check out our virtual library tour videos of some of our libraries on St. George campus.
