While Robarts Library is the closest library, FI students also will find materials of interest – depending on their areas of study – in libraries such as:
ROM Library | Engineering & Computer Science Library | Gerstein Science Information Centre | OISE Library | Government Publications at Robarts Library | Map & Data Library | Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library | All UTL libraries
FI students may access the course reserve material listed on their FI course syllabi at the Robarts Course Reserves service, located at the Media Commons on the 3rd floor of Robarts Library. Check their hours of opening here. Note that Course Reserves are closed stacks, so students must have the call number(s) of the book(s) they seek.
Faculty of Information professors, librarians, staff, current students, alumni, and a collective of professionals and academics from each program and concentration, work together to create the iSkills roster of workshops offered exclusively to FI students in fall and winter terms. Together with the required curricula, these workshops create a unique information and heritage educational experience. They also address academic, professional, and technical competencies aligned with the Faculty’s programs and concentrations.
