A message from the University Librarian
Catherine Davidson

On behalf of all of us on the Library team, I wish you a warm welcome to your Libraries. We are committed to providing you - our students, staff and faculty - with rich programs, services and collections that support and enhance student engagement and success, faculty teaching and the university’s research mission. We strive to provide inclusive spaces where all members of the community feel safe and welcome.

Our Libraries include the Library on the North Oshawa Campus and the Social Science, Humanities & Education Library located at 61 Charles St. Our collection includes 99,700 print volumes and you can access 947,606 online resources including ejournals, ebooks, streaming video, theses and dissertations and much more. Our dedicated team is here to help you successfully navigate and locate the resources and services available to you throughout your time here.

Take a moment to explore our website; you’ll discover an array of services and supports such as curated research guides dedicated to your discipline and area of study, chat reference service, and unique lendables such as chargers, podcast kits  and much more.  Follow that with an in-person visit so that you can explore our vibrant and welcoming spaces such as the Fireside Reading Room (North) and the brick-lined room where our Education collection resides (61 Charles).

We hope to see you soon!

Catherine Davidson
