Staff

An overview of Library services available to Laurier staff.

All Laurier staff have full access to the collections and services of the Laurier Library. We are happy to support you in your work and learning.

Using the Library collection

How to borrow or use our collections

You need your OneCard to borrow any of the circulating material from our collection. Online resources are available on or off campus through your network login.

Read our borrowing policies for staff.

Finding Library collections

The Library provides access to online and print resources, including books, databases, newspapers and journals. A good starting point is the Omni search tool which has books and some articles. For more articles specific to a certain subject, try the search tools listed under subject guides.

Our Omni catalogue also searches the collections of many other academic libraries across Ontario, which you can request and borrow as well. See Requesting books from other libraries in Omni.

Our collection is primarily academic, but it does include more popular material like graphic novels, literature, music, and films.
